Despite heightened awareness of global warming, the proliferation of long-term commitments combined with short-term actions are failing to prevent the spiral towards catastrophic climate change and the continued collapse of biodiversity. As reality bites so does the pressure for more effective collective action to dramatically evolve politics, business and consumption.
This Future Agenda insight explores the challenges ahead and argues that, rather than focusing on the treating the symptoms it would be wiser to tackle the root causes of climate change. For example, by re-thinking mainstream economic principles which are not yet set up to account for the environmental damage that is being created. It suggests that a fundamental new form of measurement is required to ensure that we live within our planetary boundaries.
