214. Absurd Economics & Bonkers Billionaires Driving Us to Extinction

This Reboot Republic talks to John Gibbons, long time climate action activist, environmentalist and campaigning journalist about the Environmental Protection Agency’s latest report on the Irish Government’s climate targets. We are supposed to have a 51% reduction in emissions by 2030, but on the basis of current responses, we will only get a 20% reduction.
We discuss what’s wrong with concentration in Irish agriculture, food sovereignty and security, the problem with the dominant climate economics, which models, the cost efficiency of climate investment at a 4 degree increase, basically when the planet is destroyed. And we discuss inequalities and billionaires, and why we need a redistributive transition to change our economies and societies through the climate changes.
