This fact has recently been increasingly recognised by SS-people. Afionis et al. (2017) conclude: "The climate change regime has gradually evolved into a prime example of an ossifying process that continuously receives new technical or scientific input but consistently fails to act on it."
González-Márquez & Toledo (2020) dig even deeper, and are arguing that the core idea (namely, the necessity and viability of economic growth) behind sustainability science and sustainable development must be questioned because the pillars beneath it (namely, the belief in the power of markets and human ingenuity) can no longer bear the load of the current vortex of misery.
