I think the climate goals will not be met as long as we maintain this economy based on infinite growth, regardless the long term consequences. As long as we keep talking about carbon tax and things like that, nothing meaningful will change. We need a structural solution for this structural problem.

"Inadequate progress on climate action makes rapid transformation of societies only option.

Updated pledges since COP26 in Glasgow take less than one per cent off projected 2030 greenhouse gas emissions; 45 per cent is needed for limiting global warming to 1.5°C.

The Emissions Gap Report 2022: The Closing Window – Climate crisis calls for rapid transformation of societies finds that urgent sector and system-wide transformations – in the electricity supply, industry, transport and buildings sectors, and the food and financial systems – would help to avoid climate disaster."
