For the resilience and stability of our climate and planet,
we must accelerate empowering, ethical solutions to stabilize and reduce human population, hyperconsumption, and inequality.
For 25 years, hardly anyone's spoken about population and consumption, and facing head-on the two major 'multiplier threats' to our planet.
It's seemed taboo to talk about both - the unspoken elephant in the room.
We can't accept that. Rome is burning.
Stable Planet Alliance and its members are pushing forward to help governments and civil society talk and act swiftly again to bend the curve on population and consumption, and reduce our impact on our planet and climate - through public policy and public conversations.
Ethical, empowering, beneficial, just solutions are still quite possible - when we act soon.
No more bickering and finger-pointing about who's at fault.
We must all be part of these most urgent solutions.
