Economic activity, as well as growth, originates from two places (which are actually one, but we count them as separate as a kind of shorthand). Labor (human but sometimes animal or biological process) and energy (fossil fuels, renewables, radioactive elements, etc.). Here’s the point: economic activity or growth based on fossil fuels will not be reliable or sustainable moving forward, and neither will climate restoration payments based on same. As the climate worsens, that regime will collapse.
