The US has lost the moral argument for capitalism …//Climate change’s brutal toll on Africa

July 10th, 2017 •

The US has lost the moral argument for capitalism given its scofflaw indifference to its own, and global, industrial climate causation: if we can’t restrain capitalist depradation of planetary resources we have both the right and the duty to intervene to create a new system. The powers that be are…powerful, but in a way they are powerless because they have chosen blind folly…

It is a bitter irony that the countries that have done the least to cause climate change are going to suffer the most. Countries that have minuscule carbon footprints are going to be the first to suffer the consequences of flooding, drought and displacement.
