But it goes beyond simply discussing climate change. After Harvey and Irma we also have a moral duty to talk about the economic system that has brought us to this point. That is, we can no longer talk about climate change without talking about capitalism, which has laid waste to our planet and now impedes humanity’s effort to deal with the climate crisis it engendered.
Back in the days when people actually bothered to read the climate science we had the SRES. Which showed that the outcome from a future with globalised capitalism was better, in every respect – yea, including climate change – than one with localised socialist wibble.
