Naomi Klein: How science is telling us all to revolt

Standing at the front of the conference room, the geophysicist from the University of California, San Diego walked the crowd through the advanced computer model he was using to answer that question. He talked about system boundaries, perturbations, dissipation, attractors, bifurcations and a whole bunch of other stuff largely incomprehensible to those of us uninitiated in complex systems theory. But the bottom line was clear enough: global capitalism has made the depletion of resources so rapid, convenient and barrier-free that “earth-human systems” are becoming dangerously unstable in response. When pressed by a journalist for a clear answer on the “are we f**ked” question, Werner set the jargon aside and replied, “More or less.”

He isn’t saying that his research drove him to take action to stop a particular policy; he is saying that his research shows that our entire economic paradigm is a threat to ecological stability. And indeed that challenging this economic paradigm – through mass-movement counter-pressure – is humanity’s best shot at avoiding catastrophe.

So what Anderson and Bows are really saying is that there is still time to avoid catastrophic warming, but not within the rules of capitalism as they are currently constructed. Which may be the best argument we have ever had for changing those rules.

But there are many people who are well aware of the revolutionary nature of climate science. It’s why some of the governments that decided to chuck their climate commitments in favour of digging up more carbon have had to find ever more thuggish ways to silence and intimidate their nations’ scientists.  … The Conservative government of Stephen Harper has done such an effective job of gagging scientists and shutting down critical research projects that, in July 2012, a couple thousand scientists and supporters held a mock-funeral on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, mourning “the death of evidence”. Their placards said, “No Science, No Evidence, No Truth”.

But the truth is getting out anyway. … It’s not a revolution, but it’s a start.

Excellent Process structure Diagram for Business organization evocative of #OODA loops which in fact I think would elucidate many of these dynamics at a much deeper level.

I will definitely use this modeling.

+Ric Dragon you might enjoy.
This seems like stuff +John Kellden and +David Amerland might be interested in.

Very cool - if I were a musician - this visual would feel like a true metaphor for what lies within - and how different it appears to the outside world - but maybe it really could fit all of us - who have a song playing throughout our lives... That only we can bring play :)

I still cringe a bit when calling anything emotional "baggage" - as if it's not wanted or some kind of taint on our otherwise perfect Selves... but her points are relevant for those of us trying to make significant relationships grow.

I'm drawn to anything relating to Maslow - find it fascinating that a simple model can coalesce the thinking of a particular community and it's consciousness... this piece is a bit of an inventory using his model as a springboard - I think I'm a bit light on the sense of humor ...
