Our economic system and our planetary system are now at war. Or, more accurately, our economy is at war with many forms of life on earth, including human life. What the climate needs to avoid collapse is a contraction in humanity’s use of resources; what our economic model needs to avoid collapse is unfettered expansion. Only one of these sets of rules can be changed, and it’s not the laws of nature.
