The climate change argument is filled with non sequitors, both on the side of the politicians and corporations and on the protestors’. Yes, we desperately need to sort out what we are doing to the planet before it’s too late. Yes, we need to completely change how we produce food and energy, how we waste resources and how we rely on a globalised production chain. But the current answers to these problems are nothing more than remarketing on the one side, and absolutely no solution on the other, apart from passing blame.
Our grandchildren will look back at our generation with disgust at how we basically destroyed Eden through laziness and greed. If we want a future for our descendants, and for Planet Earth, then we need to realise that the way we are heading will just compound the issue, cover it with a new layer of paint and merely delay the inevitable. We’ll just be passing the buck even further down the line.
But how do we resolve this? First by taking back control of the biggest decisions facing humanity and the Earth out of the hands of those who have thus far shown nothing but personal greed, and placing it into the hands of those with true understanding and experience of Gaia as a complex system – with us a part of that system.
