Neoliberal capitalism turns life into money by killing it, but what good is that money on a dying planet?
Today we speak to Paul Hawken about how to end the climate crisis in one generation using an approach centered on regeneration.
Paul is an environmentalist, entrepreneur, author, and activist who has dedicated his life to environmental sustainability and changing the relationship between business and the environment.
For Paul, the solutions to climate change are local, where human beings use their imagination to form economies that create more life than they take.
We discuss Paul’s book Drawdown, in which he provides a list of 100 potential solutions to climate change and ranks them by the potential amount of greenhouse gases each could cut.
We also talk about his new book, Regeneration, which offers a unique approach to understanding and taking action to address the climate crisis.
In this conversation, Paul talks about why the fear and guilt-based climate change narratives don’t work and how we need to reimagine our relationship to our surroundings if we are to save the planet. He also addresses the lack of purpose people feel thanks to the current system and why bringing the earth back to life will bring people back to life too.
