"'Climate change' is a tricky term, suggesting different things to different people. That’s why writer Charles Eisenstein tries to avoid the term altogether.
"What Eisenstein believes about climate change diverges sharply from both mainstream and skeptical discourse.
"'The climate change issue is a gateway to truths about the human condition that hold whether or not you accept the dominant climate change narrative,' Eisenstein wrote on Substack. 'The first of these [truths] is: What we do to the world, we do to ourselves. Self and other, humanity and nature are not separate. We may not die if the Amazon dies, but surely something within us dies, something precious, something sacred.'"
