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

What makes an economy Circular? Decompose to New Life !

Let’s review.

>>In Nature, After Use:Dead tissues break down and are converted into simple organic forms;food for new life.
>>In Industry, After Use: Break-it-up, dismantle it, separate materials, disassemble it, take it apart into its various materialsand ready them as new feed-stocks for new production.
