Currently, the dominant narrative behind mitigating climate change is one based on economic opportunity: more, but greener. While it may lower carbon emissions eventually, this narrative doesn’t offer solutions for – or even acknowledge – the many other planetary boundaries we’re already exceeding.

I’ve been saying the same for quite some time to anyone who will listen.
