Breezeway Dialogues Presents:

Did Capitalism Cause Climate Change, and is "Green Capitalism" the solution? 

 

Climate change is a problem that is implicated in virtually all of the sectors of the global economy. Greenhouse gas emissions are embedded in most if not all of our daily production and consumption activities: well beyond the automobile, modern agricultural and industrial projects are producing unsustainable levels of atmospheric carbon. The fact that many "green capitalist" ventures, initiated by capitalist nations that are responsible for the highest emissions globally, are now failing to meet their aims begs an important question: “Is a capitalist approach to resolving the climate crisis likely to work if capitalism is implicated in generating the problem in the first place?”
