Finally in the mood to phase out fossil fuel? – Governance

Yes, Governance! One of the ESGs.
WOW! So much is already happening, TODAY, to phase them out.*
– Solutions through the law

“The rules of our world are laws, and they can be changed. Laws can restrict or they can enable. What matters is what they serve. Many of the laws in our world serve property – they are based on ownership. But imagine a law that has a higher moral authority… a law that puts people and planet first. Imagine a law that starts from first “do no harm”, that stops this dangerous game and takes us to a place of safety….” Polly Higgins, 2015

“We need to change the rules.”
Greta Thunberg, 2019

The World is too small for ….Pox?

Infections that pass from animals to humans are known as zoonotic diseases. Some of these also have the ability to pass from human to human once they make the jump across species.
In that respect, monkeypox has some similarities to Covid-19. But it’s been around a lot longer than the coronavirus behind the recent pandemic.
