This chapter explores the role of the state and market-oriented environmentalism when asking the question why society continues to burn fossil fuels and harm the earth when climate inaction is no longer an option. Through an exploration of gas flaring and superhighways in Nigeria, along with impacts from cyclones and extreme weather, the chapter argues that there is no time for false solutions or capitulation to weak climate policy in the Paris Agreement. Rather than competition, overconsumption and destructive extractivism, it is necessary to rebuild solidarity and cooperation by taking the planet off life support and rejuvenating her cycles through our relationship with other beings.
