The climate crisis is worsening every day, but in concrete terms hardly anything is changing. The growth of greenhouse gases is unrestrained and takes on a dramatic scale. This is no coincidence, because capitalism is only stable as long as it grows.
Unfortunately, green energy from the sun and wind will never be enough to fuel global growth. The industrialized countries must therefore say goodbye to capitalism and strive for a circular economy. Only what can be recycled is to be consumed.
