That\’s the thesis, we\’re not doing anything about it because the media never tell anyone about it.
Or as you might describe it, she\’s whining that no one will show her propaganda. Which is probably a good thing:
Our consumption of those goods – a highly inefficient use of our natural capital – has wrought a long list of environmental consequences. Staggering deforestation, check.
Most odd really. The rich countries are reforesting. Have been for decades. The low point in the US was the 1920s for example, since then the forest covered area has been growing. And yes, this near century old \”secondary\” forest is pretty much indistinguishable from the areas that never were cut down to farm.
So, we seem to have a correlation between wealth and not deforestation then.
Weather may fade, but pictures of post-drought west Texas, hurricane-ravaged New Orleans and submerging countries such as Tuvalu are a stark reminder that climate change carries not only an economic or environmental toll, but also a human one.
And Tuvalu ain\’t submerging either.
Hmm, maybe we should popularise this woman\’s ideas. Show them up for what they are then? You know, like wrong?
