In this article, adebayoalonge explores the history of climate change, assesses the current approaches to solving the climate change crisis and explores the post-human existence of earth should we fail to transform our civilization to protect the earth. He proposes that we must evacuate land, reduce city sprawl and leave the earth to regenerate evacuated lands. We must move from ownership to kinship- human success must be redefined from accumulation to sharing- like our ancestors lived. We must eliminate meat based diets, reduce births per woman, let the forests be and allow ‘wild animals’ free roam. Prices must rise, production volumes must fall and humans must learn to do without.
