The problem with modern day problem solving in sustainable development, whether from the perspective of socio-economics, Ecosystem-based management of human resources, human dimensions modelling or even complex science based modelling, is that all these systems are anthropocentric, as is all modern evidence based science.
And it is the Vatican science department which is making sure that it stays anthropocentric.
And which politician in his right mind can sell to his constituents and/or voters decision-making based on non-anthropocentric evidence based science?
In addition the very United Nations laid down a doctrine which does not allow meddling with.
The International Bill of Human Rights is an informal name given to one General Assembly resolution and two international treaties established by the United Nations. It consists of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (adopted in 1948), the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (1966) with its two Optional Protocols and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1966). The two covenants entered into force in 1976, after a sufficient number of countries had ratified them.
We are doomed because the UN lacked the foresight of hardwiring species rights instead of human rights.
