Climate Pragmatism Triumphs Locally, Greens Can Save Capitalism, and More!

Quote of the Decade:


An excerpt from Naomi Klein, in her latest book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate, available here.

OO Progressives, Enviros, And Scientists Can Save Capitalism argues Joe Romm at Climate Progress, from the pro-collapse polluters and their enablers. Pursuing relentless short term economic growth that leads to longterm collapse from climate change is the ultimate form of anti-growth.

Thus, unchecked capitalism is a Ponzi scheme that must collapse. Our prolonged inaction in the face of that growing threat of collapse forces drastic action now.
