"After more than 25 years of the United Nations process on Climate Change, it has taken a pandemic to shift the playing field enough to make a transformative response possible. Incremental changes will not suffice: we need a transformative response. I feel renewed hope that we are capable of such a response. It will be just in time before the window of opportunity to avoid cataclysmic climate change closes on our species. The cascading effects triggered by the pandemic will continue to present us with partial systems failures and breakdown over the coming months and years. This will continue to reveal outdated habits, structures and behaviours which are no longer adequate ways of participating in the nested complexity and unpredictable dynamics of life in the 21st Century."
