Can democracy cope with climate change? Eminent climate scientist, James Lovelock, has claimed that humans are too stupid to deal with climate change and argued that we may need to put democracy “on hold for a while” to deal with it. In an interview for the Guardian, Lovelock argues: ... click to dive deeper.. www.sciencewise-erc.org.uk Can democracy cope with climate change?

Science matters because it is the closest thing we have to an objective reference point for debates that might otherwise lack grounding. It is striking that the world has authoritative agreement on its main systemic threat, but no equivalent authority is close to even constructively disagreeing about what to do about it. www.ipcc.ch Fifth Assessment Report - The Physical Science Basis includes assessment of climate change observations throughout the climate system; sea level change, biogeochemical cycles, clouds and aerosols, and regional climate phenomena.

Law matters, because it acts as a powerful constraint at scale. Our best hope for rapid climate mitigation still lies in international law, ideally with agreement on a global carbon budget and national commitments commensurate with the need to keep most of our remaining fossil fuels in the ground. We also need law to help administer effective carbon taxes, to reinterpret the fiduciary duty of trustees to balance short-term shareholder value with longer-term risks, and perhaps even to create the crime of “ecocide” that could, for instance, help to limit deforestation.
Money matters, because capitalism is the planet’s operating system, and given the time constraints, we will need to respond to the climate change problem from within the system that created it. That means following capital flows, recognising the harm they can do, and rapidly redirecting them so that they help us move towards a viable future. In practice that means divesting from fossil fuels and reinvesting in renewables, while transparently linking growth strategies to ecological constraints.
4. Technology matters because we need innovative forms of creating, storing and transporting energy urgently. However, while we think of gadgets as speeding things up, the process of technological development – from basic research through to intellectual property battles to commercialization – can be painfully slow. The time-sensitivity of the climate challenge calls for an acceleration of the most needful forms of technological development. ..
