In December 2012, a complex system scientist walked up to
the podium at the American Geophysics Union to
present a paper. It was titled: “Is Earth Fucked?” His answer was: “yeah, pretty much.” That’s where the road we’re on is taking us. But that has less to do with carbon, than it does with capitalism. Our economic model is at war with life on earth. We can’t change the laws of nature, but we can change our broken economy. And that’s why climate change isn’t just a disaster. It’s also our best chance to demand and build a better world. Change or be changed. But make no mistake: this changes everything.
