Is there still a chance for humanity? SRF Sternstunde Philosophy Interview – in English and German.

The pandemic offers a unique chance for radical economic and social reform.

To slow the pace of climate change, the fossil fuel industry, aviation sector and auto business have to be dismantled. Until recently that was thought impossible. Covid-19 proves this wrong. The Coronavirus shows that it is possible to shut businesses overnight, cut greenhouse gas emissions and pay people during a transition.

The time for governments to act is not when the consequences of their negligence and folly have become overwhelming. It is now, with the transition led by those who have not been brainwashed by the economic virus that is killing the planet.

“A must read for every thinking person.” Prof Paul Shrivastava, Penn State University.

Warum hat sich nichts geändert?

Wie und warum es dazu gekommen ist, welche Konsequenzen zu erwarten sind, und was wir Menschen im Einzelnen und als Gesellschaft tun sollten, ist Gegenstand dieses Buches.
