The earth is spinning into an ever-greater ecological crisis. Yet the primary solutions to end this crisis – ranging from international environmental agreements to national laws to corporate codes of conduct to individual lifestyle changes – are failing to make significant headway in ending this escalating crisis. The failure to confront rising rates of overconsumption, unequal consumption, and inequality of wealth are critical reasons for this crisis. Mainstream solutions such as the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change and the 2016 Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation are doing more to enrich and protect those in power than address the innate unsustainability of global wealth creation and consumption.
