Capitalism has failed ...

Capitalism has failed, and you don't solve a problem with the same
thinking that got you into the problem.

All we are seeing now is what was forecast by The Limits to Growth in
1972...just look around, oil depleting, water shortages, pollution
increasing and with it the consequences such as climate change; and
population keeps rising.

Nagoya will see the rich elite scrabbling for what is left.

According to the BBC article - “On the table in Nagoya is a
comprehensive draft agreement that would tackle the underlying causes
of biodiversity loss…At the heart of the idea is the belief that if
governments understand the financial costs of losing nature, they can
adopt new economic models that reward conservation and penalise
degradation.”

Are we really to believe that the core of the problem is some
combination of a lack of education, too little economics and a
restriction in opportunities for accumulation? That if somehow the
wider ecology is more completely commodified and opened up to private
ownership, private profit and financial speculation - explicitly
making it a part of a process that has capitalism work better for
capital - a solution form will have presented itself? Perhaps we can
interpret the purpose of the meeting differently -
