The world is in dire need of revolutionary leaders, transformative agendas and sweeping scientific principles, that would set our communities on fire and challenge us to dream big and change the status quo.
Part of the challenge is that the world’s political and economic systems are designed to focus on short-term challenges and gains, the study authors argue, causing the long-term problems of climate change, biodiversity loss, and ecological destruction to go unaddressed.
“In fact, the scale of the threats to the biosphere and all its lifeforms is so great that it is difficult to grasp for even well-informed experts, “The problem is compounded by ignorance and short-term self-interest, with the pursuit of wealth and political interests stymying the action that is crucial for survival.”
“Most economies operate on the basis that counteraction now is too costly to be politically palatable, Combined with disinformation campaigns to protect short-term profits it is doubtful that the scale of changes we need will be made in time.”
If we don’t wake up, we may be heading to self destruct because an unguided man is tragedy.
