I find this article a nice example of the frustrating situation "true conclusions but falsely argued". A couple observations on what Monbiot gets wrong, in my opinion, in the relationship between capitalism and environment 1/n
Only when we look at the deep history of capitalism do we see it for what it really is: a fire front, raging across the planet, ignited by people who operate offshore.
So, Monbiot is right, what is devouring the planet is now capitalism. You can't fix the environment without changing our economical model. But even with a different model, a political and ethical choice is necessary. Abandoning capitalism is necessary but not sufficient. 9/9
