Well, the two goals are entangled. Can't really do one without the other. The trick is just to get started. I am very pleased we have the amount of renewable energy sources that we presently do. As renewables grow for reasons of cost competitiveness that will drive other aspects as well.

It's a collection of articles he has written on the subject of ecology and humanity, starting around 1970. He has been very little translated into English :
Morin did not embrace the French postmodern or poststructuralist movements, instead pursuing his own research agenda. As a result, US academics did not transport his theories into disciplinary discourses in same fashion as they did Foucault's and Derrida's.

He just turned 98. Ironically for the theoretician of complex thought, he's pretty good at Twitter :

"They label me a sociologist; in fact, I work on the trinitarian nature of humanity : individual, society, species. It's anthropology, in the literal sense : the transdisciplinary connection of all human knowledge; which led me to complexity."
