War on Nature

Acrylic painting on Belgium canvas

Reflects on the challenge to move away from burning fossils fuels, for energy consumption without inadvertently creating bigger unintended social crisis problems/ consequences. The global climate is a system, therefore Climate change is a systemic challenge, that requires systems thinking approach, that doesn’t only address the symptoms, but intuitively intervening at a highly leveraged point within the social system, knowing that systems are more than the sum of their parts. Economist Milton Friedman believes ‘Only a crisis - actual or perceived - produces real change’.
