Ecocentricity Blog: The Economic Opportunities and Challenges of the Net-Zero Transition

By: John A. Lanier
Summary: 

In January, McKinsey & Company released a sweeping report that explores what a successful net-zero transition would entail. The report makes it clear that decarbonizing our economies is a worthwhile endeavor, but it also highlights the challenges inherent in making the shift. One particular challenge - ensuring that low-emission supply of energy matches shifts in demand - may prove to be make-or-break when it comes to solving the climate crisis.

Ecocentricity Blog - Back Where It Belongs: The Importance of Native American Land Stewardship

By: John A. Lanier
Summary:

Recently though, a creative conservation transaction presented an opportunity to give land back to the people who had traditionally stewarded it. It’s a model that I hope is replicated over and over again.

Ecocentricity Blog - Down With The Economic Man: Thoughts on the Shortcomings of Our Economic Paradigm

By: John A. Lanier
Summary: 

So many of the assumptions within economics are rooted in the idea that people are, first and foremost, self-interested. This mindset may have served well to explain how our economic systems are, but it can prevent us from imagining how they should be. To solve our most challenging environmental and social problems, we need economic thinking that sees people as more than merely self-interested.
