So what do you do when the environmental odds are officially stacked against you?The graph in the top right corner is a rough copy of the Vostok Ice Core graph, which measures levels of methane and Co2 against the Earth’s temperature all the way down a deep ice core in Antarctica. The end of the graph shows a rise in temperature (as well as Co2 and methane) and levels out. This is when agriculture started, for 90% of our time on this planet, humans have been hunter-gatherers only. During around 1750-1800, humans were able to access fossilised energy, which lead to a monumental rise in what we now accept as a normal standard of living. This has not only come an environmental price but a global inequality too vast to even fathom. In 1820, the ratio of impoverished countries to wealthy was around 3 to 1, today it’s closer to 72 to 1.
