Marking the 50th anniversary of the Limits to Growth, one of the original authors describes: ‘Because we haven’t taken effective action in the past, crises are mounting. It’s in the nature of the political response that, when crisis comes, you focus more and more on the short term, and your time horizon shrinks. And because that leads you to do things which fundamentally don’t solve the problem, the crisis gets worse. So, as the crisis gets worse, the time horizon shrinks even more, bad decision making increases, and the crisis goes up even further. That’s where I see us now.’
#Overshoot demands a radical expansion of political and activist horizons.
#TalkCollapse to expand the parameters of acceptable debate and responses.
