Green Growth, or Degrowth?

This is an important debate. Get a coffee and watch

An important assumption of “Green Growth” as popularly framed is renewables, at a demand scale much larger that today’s. This points in the direction of a much more material hungry planet, esp for the rapid transition we need.

Just “decarbonizing” will not cut it if our hunger for other non renewables grows to enable that. “Innovation” has to be strongly oriented towards regenerative else avoidable.

We’re at a stage where everything needs to change, and fast. Economics, politics, assumptions and definitions of much we’ve taken for granted?

Can/will we create an alternative world?
