Abstract

This Opinion is an invitation for a scientific (but also public) reflection and action. A technologically advanced society can become sustainable only if the scientific knowledge is the cornerstone in the process of decision making. Hence, we propose to enrich the present democratic system with a fourth power, “the power of knowledge” (or “scientific power”). Decisions of the scientific power (strictly based on the scientific knowledge) must assure the lasting equilibrium between humankind and Nature. A new decision making system with four separated powers (legislative, executive, judicial and scientific power) is a necessary step for the survival of humankind; such a system cannot be achieved without a worldwide rebellion of scientists who should consider all democratic ways of fight including the right to strike on a planetary level. Of course, we know that all this may seem like a utopia, and presumably it is, yet this is the first time in human history that our survival depends on our ability to realise such utopias.

Keywords: [comma separated]sustainable society, pollution, climate change, a new global decision making system, planetary state of emergency, production for the quality of life
