Climate and the Logic of Capitalism

program date: 
Mon, 09/22/2014
Some liberal economists have suggested that stopping climate change is an easy fix: it would be good for the economy, and we have the technology.  But that ignores the political question of who controls the policy making institutions, as Rob Urie argues in this article from CounterPunch, read for us here by Tom Becker.  Climate Change “is a problem created by the ‘approach to the world’ that is capitalism.” Photo Credit: Mother Earth News. 7:51 minutes (5.39 MB)
