Spring has sprung. It’s a good time for good news.
When Paul Gilding’s book The Great Disruption was published in 2011 it had a profound impact on me. In September of that year I wrote that it was, for me, the most accessible and full-bodied treatment to date of the effects of climate change on our planet, our economies, our lives.
Still is – although Gus Speth’s superb new book America the Possible is a knock-out that in many ways expands the vision further.
Gilding has a blog called “The Cockatoo Chronicles.” It has been inactive for some months, but recently he made up for lost time when he posted a 2500 word essay that argues for a new reality: the economy is now aligned with the environment and there is evidence that we can – and will – win the climate change battle.
That’s a big thing to say.
