the ecoglobe vision:
In 2000 we moved to Geneva, Switzerland, with the aim of influencing ecological decision making in an international environment. The following are some of our front pages over the past 15 years. They may illustrate our changing mindset, also described in detail in our ecostory and scenarios pages.
Today, by the end of 2014, we have come to the conclusion that humanity cannot be saved because (1) the overshoot and depletion is far beyond restauration and adaptation, and (2) the people in power positions are unabale and unwilling to recognise and act accordingly.
So we added the "404 fatal error" page, from a nostalgic IT dawn era. William R Catton Jnr. describes the ecological "fatal error" in his 1982 "Overshoot". Herbert Gruhl explains our end in "Himmelfahrt ins Nichts" ["The End" - "Ascension into nothingness"] ["La fin" - "Ascension au rien""].
The Compact of Business, Politics and the discipline of Economics (BPE) are living in their own illusionary worlds of Hope-Optimism-Technology, disconnected from scientific realities. The BPE are increasing resource depletion speeds and the wealth differences between the super-rich and normal, working people.
What remains to do is to protect livelyhoods and maintain decency on local levels as long as possible. back
