In this week’s Off The Cuff I sit down with William Rees to discuss:
- Bill’s coining of the ‘ecological footprint’ concept
- Why he thinks humans have reach a ‘plague stage’ on the planet
- Why our leaders are unwilling to admit to the two problems that matter most
- Bill’s outlook for humanity’s future
We dive deep into the Environment/Ecology “E” of the Three E’s in this week’s Off The Cuff.
Highly-esteemed bio-ecologist and ecological economist William Rees returns to the program to reinforce his warning that the human population is badly in ecological overshoot. If we do not find a way to reduce our taxation of the planet’s resources, the consequences will be devastating.
And sadly, he notes that those “leaders” making policy decisions avoid addressing the issues that pose the greatest threat, because they are politically “sensitive”. Because of this, Bill considers most of the current multi-national agreements focused on dealing with issues of pollution, climate change, species loss, etc are misdirected attempts that aren’t addressing the core problems in the manner or scope needed.
