We are not a science based society. We are a religion based society and the religion is free market economics. The believers are irrational fundamentalists who treat scientists as heretics when they reveal the limits of the earth’s capacity to sustain industrial capitalist growth based on fossil fuel.

Our economic system is not rational, it is based on artificial premises that are articles of faith for the believers.

The economic system is dysfunctional ecologically.

Dysfunctional systems trend toward extinction.

It can be turned around, but not whilst we cling to legal, financial and economic systems that contradict the basic ecological governance principles of our planet and the physical universe.

The case for renewable energy vs fossil fuels is a Copernican moment for our society. It is an argument of rational realism vs fundamentalist capitalist fantasy
