Nafeez Ahmed: A new post-carbon era dawns as the old fossil fuel system dies. It’s time to step up.

Willy De Backer‘s insight:

Another must-read top post by the brilliant Nafeez Ahmed but I disagree with his "optimism of the will". Of course there will not be any extinction by 2030 but the transition from the old fossil-fuel and debt-based paradigm to the new ‘one-planet economy’ will not be without lots of pain and violence. Vive la révolution? Revolutions have a habit of eating their children or heroes, dear Nafeez.
