We’re All Climate-Change Idiots

We’re All Climate-Change Idiots | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it
The mental habits that help us navigate the practical demands of day-to-day life make it difficult to engage with the more remote dangers posed by climate change.

 

Interesting article on the psychology of climate change. If we all suffer from these mental blocks, do we really believe the climate crisis can be solved withing a democratic system?

"Purpose beyond Power"

"Purpose beyond Power" | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it
Liberal democracies in the West today are struggling to avoid – and in doing so are exacerbating – a crisis of identity, which puts the existing social contract at risk and threatens their implosion.

 

Excellent analysis by Wolfgang Reinicke at Project Syndicate about the erosion of our liberal democracy as a result of shifted power structures due to globalisation.

Why China Can’t Adjust

Why China Can’t Adjust | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

"So in a sense, the Chinese bubble – as much an intellectual and political bubble as an economic one – has burst. As China’s economic deceleration exposes its structural vulnerabilities and flawed policies, the much-hyped notion of “Chinese exceptionalism” – that China can continue to grow without the rule of law and the other essential institutions that a modern market economy presupposes – is proving to be nothing but a delusion."

 

Interesting article by Minxin Pei in Project Syndicate on the future of the Chinese economy.
