Let’s stop capitalism from destroying our planet

Greed is never good. Stop stealing our planet’s future and leaving it up to the next generation to deal with the consequences. Time is running out.

George Monbiot has an excellent opinion piece on how capitalism is destroying the Earth.

“At the heart of capitalism is a vast and scarcely examined assumption: you are entitled to as great a share of the world’s resources as your money can buy. You can purchase as much land, as much atmospheric space, as many minerals, as much meat and fish as you can afford, regardless of who might be deprived. If you can pay for them, you can own entire mountain ranges and fertile plains. You can burn as much fuel as you like. Every pound or dollar secures a certain right over the world’s natural wealth.”
