“Green growth” doesn’t exist in a world where we have already broken most planetary boundaries. Humanity must shrink its usage of materials and energy, and associated waste and pollution, or ecological, economic and societal collapse will follow. Even IPCC reports have started to mention degrowth.

Carbon emissions from Australia’s ‘Dirty Dozen’ more than half Pacific Islands’ emissions

A new Climate Council report has found that between 2016 and 2021, a group of just 12 Australian fossil fuel companies emitted more carbon pollution than 50% of the Pacific Islands’ total emissions over the same period

No more LNG — B.C.’s big climate problem

Even as the climate crisis intensifies, big oil and gas companies, like Shell, are pushing the B.C. government to expand the liquefied natural gas industry. Doing so would mean thousands of kilometres of new pipelines, thousands of new fracking wells and megatonnes of new greenhouse gas emissions. It would also mean B.C. could not meet its climate targets

Emissions divide now greater within countries than between them – study

This has profound consequences for climate action, as it shows that people on low incomes within developed countries are contributing less to the climate crisis, while rich people in developing countries have much bigger carbon footprints than was previously acknowledged

A Disney heiress — one who always flies commercial, she says — has added her voice to those criticizing the Kardashians, Taylor Swift, Elon Musk and other celebrities who travel by private jet. With their inefficient fuel use, those luxury flights are heating up the planet and speeding the arrival of cataclysmic outcomes, detractors say

this type of inner conflict creates dissonance and denialism — both of which are playing critical roles as defence mechanisms as we try to face our doomsday scenario. Deceiving ourselves that we have a back-pocket “nature solution” to the climate crisis feeds into that denialism
