Larry Elliot, the economics editor at The Guardian, has a rather interesting piece on the hitherto unshakable dependence of the world economy on fossil fuels.
It’s a long read, but it’s worth the time. Elliot’s main point is this poignant question.
“Can we imagine a future that is cleaner, greener and sustainable – one that avoids climate armageddon – without abandoning the idea of growth and, thus, forcing living standards into decline?
He is not overtly optimistic, but he’s got hope.
