The Challenge of Climate Change
This chapter identifies four shifts that must take place to overcome the challenges of climate change and better preserve what remains of the inhabitable natural environment. Globally, climate change must be accepted as fact, not fiction, and each nation must take responsibility and commit to sustainable development. The global energy system must rely on renewable sources, rather than fossil fuels. The focus must shift from economic growth to health and well-being. None of these ideas are new, but the author calls for a global strategic conversation about the shape of our collective future. The chapter concludes with the idea that climate change is an opportunity for global collaboration and the development of relationships to better the future.
