When the Titanic crashed into an iceberg in 1912, there were not enough lifeboats. We should ask ourselves, do we have better conditions nowadays? Is a crash with an iceberg preventable today? Do we have all the necessary things on board so that a survivable adaption to the climate change is possible?
Do we have to change the lifeboats to reach a fair and climate-friendly future?
It is said that we have to reinvent economising.
But what is meant by that?
Diplomats and Politicians practise on world climate conferences on building lifeboats. But until now they have not succeeded in changing the rules that deplace the icebergs that are bound to threaten the future.
