Imagine you’ve left the old story behind. You know, the one that takes for granted that Earth belongs to humans to exploit at will. You’ve started a hike into the unknown. There’s no map and for all you know you could be going in circles. But when you turn around and see the smog hanging over the world you left behind, you realise that even if you’re lost and without a map, you’re still on the right track.
