  2. Hello Gail
    would you have a look at the project Global 4C. The website is undergoing maintenance.

    The underlying thesis is that standard economics does not operate within the correct framework for understanding and managing civilisation. This answers why we are unable to deal with economic growth, fossil fuels consumption and the limits of growth. My analysis shows that a monetary framework is holistic and provides a pathway for a systemic change and exponential negative response.
    The 'Fast Collapse' concept is reasonable, but this is why an exponential response is needed. Ironically, climate change is the driver for a new world currency that can begin the process of sustainable economics. The possibility is that a social transformation and consciousness shift are still feasible. Cheers, Delton

    1. Thanks for your comment and I wish you luck with your work. However, I don't think it is possible to "shift consciousness" because the human species has a consciousness that happens to be hard-wired to grow, and no amount of logic or facts is going to change something that was built into us over millions of years of evolution. If you read very much on my blog you will learn that as far as I'm concerned, climate change is only one symptom of a larger problem of overshoot, so no amount of pricing or biosequestration will "change anything" despite what that ninny Naomi Klein uses to sell her snake-oil books.
