The Monkey Trap

Every child has seen the monkey trap. A monkey puts its hand into a box to grab a banana and then is trapped because it refuses to let go of the banana which is too big to pull back through the hole. Humanity has similarly been trapped by the lure of free market economies and globalisation. We would sooner die than give them up. We will indeed die because free market economies and globalisation are incompatible with dealing with climate change.
