We can't focus on sea levels rising and the world on fire without acknowledging the way we got here. Progress itself is not the issue - it's the way we went about progressing. Through our human-centered, settler colonialist mindset, we have leaned way out of balance with nature. We are not just needing to switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy, we need a whole new way of approaching progress, the world, each other.
