What the Stern Report didn't mention . . . .

. . . . was that combatting climate change is economically sensible- yet involves economic heresy as the oxymoron of perpetual growth within a finite space must be abandoned. There's loads of good sheet in this report.

"In the light of these considerations, there is no fundamental reason
to pursue economic growth as a primary objective of policy, or to
consider it as the key indicator of economic performance. Economic
growth does not, in itself, make people’s lives any better."
