Via Scoop.itThe Great Transition

Interesting article by two sustainability experts on the odds for success at Rio+20. “If the rule in Macau, Monte Carlo and Las Vegas is that the house always wins, in Rio, the question is who we perceive – who we allow – the house to be. If it’s again a combination of timid and self-interested government representatives, too influenced by incumbent businesses more interested in the status quo than change, and they together allow only safe, incremental steps, we all lose. But if the house at the Earth Summit is the planet, and we are prepared to make difficult political and economic choices in response to its constraints for our own long-term health and prosperity, there is a chance.” My bet is on the first 😦
