Know the following things:
It is too late for sustainable development because the public discourse has difficulty with subtle, conditional messages so realize the following:
Growth advocates change the justification for their paradigm rather than changing the paradigm itself. (Coal and gas remain the source of power for electric cars.)
- The global system is now far above its carrying capacity. 2030 ends the future expected by most.
- We act as if technological change can substitute for social change. It will not.
- The time horizon of our current system is too short. The super wealthy have built and stocked their hideaways.
The term resilience is used as a replacement for confidence. The main changes are upon us and Dennis Meadows who said the above knows the time to invest in resilience has begun. The estimates for a stabilized and sustainable world calls for about 3% of the world’s GDP. Resilience will cost more than that, but now there is no choice.
