to Morning Report

The West-Coast dam and the Ecan removal are two faces of the same problem, one we seem destined not to address. That issue is growth – which is exponential, and unfortunately, most folk only think in linear terms. This morning’s mini-debates, along with bluefin tuna, lignite, indeed every other kind of mining, are an indication that we are into the last possible ‘doubling-time’ of growth.

Time we had the debate, because at this accelerating rate, our children are clearly going to be out of options. Given the stupidity we are demonstrating, they may well be out of tolerance also.
