We have pushed the world to its limits

Posted on

I saw this picture in the Guardian this morning. Yes, that is the queue to the top of Everest.

This is staggering. And it's deeply selfish. Call it neoliberal consumption gone mad, if you wish.

And it's about as antithetical to the Green New Deal as it gets.

We need to live in a very different world now. And this picture makes clear why. We have literally pushed the world to its limits. And it can take no more.
