I could not agree more.
Some aspects of the current system (e.g. carbon trading) seek to simply
turn the problem into another market and I can't see that working,
however other aspects of the current system are evolving technologies,
ideas, practices that will give us routes out of this mess - assuming we
are smart enough to apply them.
My other worry with the idea of a grand ideological narrative that
'fixes' the problem is that espoused by philosopher John Gray who argued
that all such grand '-isms' from communism to neo-conservatism are paved
with roads of dead on the way to their utopian vision.
