BTJ 3/16 - Special: New models of economy

The fossil fuel lobbyists portray renewable energy as costly and erratic.

The eco-lobby extreme wing, on the other hand, would like to turn off all coal-, oil-, and gas-powered plants virtually overnight. Neither is true or possible.

However, the man-made nature of the current climate change is acknowledged more and more broadly, along with fairly high social acceptance for changing the business practice as usual.  

The question is: Can we afford (not to afford) a green transition?

Can we afford it?, by Przemysław Myszka

The 3/2016 issue of Baltic Transport Journal in the Special section features also:

  • Chaos is the new black. Diversity’s role in shaping new models of the economy, by Lena Lorenc, 7seas ink

Just as real life ecologies are dynamic and constantly altering, societal & political change and permanent chaos are here to stay. It can surely cause those who are lost and insecure to seek scapegoats, in general easily found in minorities and the disenfranchised. And yet, when applying logic, it's clear they're not the problem. Corporate pollution, climate change, animal abuse, advertising agencies using psychology to turn creative human beings into brain-dead consumers, political propaganda (nowadays called "perception management") - these are the things to be really worried about.
