“Democracies are ill-suited to deal with climate change,” reads the headline.
“Giving ordinary people a say over public policy impedes climate action, because we don’t care enough about other people’s problems,” writes Edward Luce in the Financial Times,
This is “another green attack on Democracy,” says Eric Worrall.
“Sadly Edward does not go on enlighten us about his version of the ideal eco-fascist utopia which should replace our current freedoms. His feeble suggestion, “to talk about the economy”, undermines his position that Democracies are not well suited to dealing with long term problems.”
“If people can be persuaded to take climate action by talking about the economy, surely this means Democracy works?”
