Today’s UN climate change summit has provoked peaceful demonstrations around the world and drew significant media attention.
The number of people changing their own behaviour and demanding change from leaders is growing. This is what is required to change the culture of permissiveness that pervades the worlds of money and politics.
Some leaders appear committed because they consistently call for change and show up for meetings. Others do not care so much. In both cases hands are tied by their populations. Until we all change our shopping habits and investment prortfolios (well done Rockerfeller Fund), the culture will remain primitive.
It looks like enlightenment is dawning, but it’s far from evident that it’s quick enough. So don’t be complacent and make a change in your energy consumption habits now.
