Narrative of Power
The dominant narrative of power is always how to get more, but in the face of climate change, rather than continuing to invest in ways to power up, we need to look for ways to power down. Viewing climate change as a crime against humanity, carbon killers like the Tar Sands bitumen, Powder River Basin and Black Mesa coal mines need to be shut down. Until we reorient ourselves to a sustainable lifestyle, common wealth and public health will remain elusive.
