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.
