The World Bank's Shocking, Cautionary Tale on Climate Change

The World Bank's Shocking, Cautionary Tale on Climate Change | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it
Like the Ghost of Christmas Future, the World Bank has just provided us with a frightening glimpse into our world-to-be if, unlike Scrooge, we fail to change our ways.

 

The new World Bank report "Turn down the heat: why a 4°C warmer world must be avoided" stands in stark contrast to all fossil-fuel friendly policies of this and other international and national governance bodies. And the silence in the media about the coming Doha summit on climate change is deafening.

Boldly creating a world that works for all - Trimtabs for systemic change

Boldly creating a world that works for all - Trimtabs for systemic change | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

 In the lecture I proposed ‘Trimtabs for systemic change’ as a strategy for creating a world that works for all. I introduced this as a strategy complementary to the conventional way of handling contemporary issues, where we strive to understand and control specific problems such as the climate change.  

# this is a really good talk, worth listening to!

How should we organize ourselves in the 21st century? | 2020 Climate Leadership Campaign

How should we organize ourselves in the 21st century? | 2020 Climate Leadership Campaign | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

There is now a brief window of opportunity – a moment outside ‘normal’ time – where a network of social movements can actively form and radically reshape the world. To do so successfully, future movements must consciously try to avoid two distinct fates: either the dissolution into a decentralised network of loose clusters of relatively isolated groups, movements and individuals – the fate of the summit-hopping phase of the movement of movements – or a decline towards a centralised network of cadres, which severely damaged the movement in the Sixties. Our lines of flight from these dead-ends consist in wilfully pushing ourselves to learn from successful networks and evolve towards a mature distributed network with abundant hubs and a powerful long tail: a movement with both mass participation and dynamic hubs of people and events, capable of evolving and responding rapidly to a fast-changing world.

Riel Miller's keynote at CDKN Action Lab

Futurist Riel Miller presents one of the keynotes with the title: "Climate Change, Embracing Complexity, and Change in the Conditions of Change." Oxford April 2011. 

 

# I have worked with him on global change projects. He has very interesting view points about the presence from the view point of the future, moving from anticipatory models beyond extrapolation towards the capacity to reframe assumptions  underyling our concepts of society, economy, or change:  Futures literacy.

Climate change as a ‘multiple object’

Climate change as a ‘multiple object’ | Futurable Planet: Answers from a Shifted Paradigm. | Scoop.it

I like the way Esbjorn-Hargens weaves in a number of strands of post-constructivist thought. His notion of climate change as a “multiple object” would appear to suggest a resonance with object-oriented ontology. This bodes well for ecophilosophical dialogue with a school (“integral philosophy”) that has remained a bit aloof from others, mainly because of the baggage accrued to its founder, Ken Wilber.
