Gareth Morgan is exhibiting narcissism

Dear Editor:

Gareth Morgan has been involved with several environmental projects in recent years and that is good and he should be proud of that.  But his call for the Greens to become an “environmental party” devoid of left wing economics is narcissistic. 

We should not expect to solve environmental problems without working on poverty and other social problems.  Exploitation of the environment and of people both spring from the same right wing ideology.    While this understanding is widespread now there is a fundamental terror in the electorate (more openly in the right wing) about the extent of change required to move toward a sustainable culture which would avoid the worst effects of climate change.

Dr Morgan is taking advantage of this general desperation to advance focus on his own environmental projects.  This is so blinkered a vision as to exhibit narcissism.

  1. The key here is transition. The world simply cannot get rid of fossil fuel overnight. However, a plan towards a sustainable future needs to be swift and fast.
