"Limits to Growth" co-author "argues that capitalism and democracy will continue to hamper climate action"

'Global warming going from bad to worse'

Randers, co-author of the seminal 1972 report "Limits to Growth," which highlighted the devastating impacts of economic and population growth on the Earth, argues that capitalism and democracy will continue to hamper climate action.

...And capitalism and democracy will remain strong for a very long time because people have trust in that system as it delivered impressive improvements in many people's quality of life over the past century, he said.

Note that "The Limits to Growth" was commissioned by the Club of Rome.
