New UN report says climate change is a worsening mess – but not hopeless

«Published in time for the Fourth United Nations Environmental Assembly, UN Environment’s sixth Global Environment Outlook (2019) calls on decision makers to take immediate action to address pressing environmental issues to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals as well as other Internationally Agreed Environment Goals, such as the Paris Agreement.»

IPCC´s (Intergovernmental panel on climate change) report of October 2018

Although the devastating impacts of climate change are already being felt around the world, the good news is: we can still limit warming to less than 1,5 degrees (IPCC, October 2018). But time is running out, fast. Even if every country meets it´s goals under the Paris agreement, we would still – with the current emissions trajectory – actually be on a course that could lead to 3 degrees warming by 2100. The Katowice COP24 Climate change deal of December 2018 is a step in the right direction, but still it remains to see whether it will actually lead to real change in carbon emissions. Either way, it is clear that to avoid disaster for hundreds of millions of people around the world we must act now, with boldness of vision and green, new ways of thinking and living.

Climate change is here, and it looks like starvation

Thus, the long history of colonial-era expropriation, exploitation, and theft echoes loudly in this new dispensation, in which the sectors of humanity that profited the least from industrialization suffer the most from its environmental impacts. The conditions that drive climate change have been created in one part of the world. The consequences have so far overwhelmingly been suffered in another. The longstanding invisibility of the majority of the planet’s poor to its privileged few has been compounded and amplified as well. – Ben Ehrenreich

Inequality and the ecological situation – by Jason Hickel

“Indeed, the post-growth movement has long argued that equality can be a substitute for growth.  By sharing what we already have more fairly, we won’t need to plunder the Earth for more. 

The objective of degrowth is to scale down aggregate resource use, energy demand and emissions, focusing on rich, high-consuming nations, and to do this while improving people’s well-being.”
