Not real growth

“Growth that irreversibly alters the climate of our planet is not real growth. It’s false and it’s futile.”

Kathleen Wynne, July 2015

I love this quote. It’s another gem of articulation.

It’s from Canadian politician Kathleen Wynne speaking at CSOTA, the Climate Summit of the Americas this month.

It cuts straight through those short-term arguments from anti-climate-action types that we need to promote economic growth before adequate climate action.

Here’s the tweet I got it from.
