These things are not distinct. And that's the point I was really trying …

"The challenges facing our society at the moment effectively are the unintended consequence of a solution we found in the late 1700s when society was running out of energy, we had no more timber, and we realized we could dig underground for ancient fossilized woodland, which is basically what coal is from about 300 million years ago. The consequenc…

"Let me start by saying what we should not be looking at, which, unfortunately, a lot of well-informed development agencies are – and they call it climate-proofing cities. That is a mistake because you cannot climate-proof anything. And it also gives the population and policymakers a wrong sense. The correct term is climate-smart. So how do you get…

“I think one thing I learned from looking at the ancient trees is that there is no great benefit to anything of growing quickly and accumulating vast resources.
