Man-made climate change is a fact that has been proven many times. Whether mankind believes in it or not. And although the global changes are already being felt firsthand, humanity still seems unaware of the urgency to act. Some climate activists believe that we must end capitalism in order to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. Traditional economic models often seem to ignore the well-being of society and disregard the future and its warning signs. But what does this deafness to reality really mean on a finite planet? How should or can democratic societies achieve the best results for a climate-friendly future if voters cannot or will not accept facts? How can we change society to think and act without resorting to undemocratic measures or coercion?
