In order to successfully avert the climate catastrophe, we quickly need to solve our collective action problem. We have to find a way to cooperate internationally, to reduce rather than expand. Humanity’s greatest challenge in the 21ˢᵗ century is not the climate — it’s us.
To achieve cooperation we have to get over the origin of sin: the illusion of separateness that leads to supremacy. This problem is particularly hard because the United States is founded on supremacy by way of colonialism and slavery. Supremacy is so unconscious it permeates all aspects of our life, including American Christianity.
To all of this we have to open our eyes.
