Having read the intro that we should confront the problem at the source, I searched for any reference to the root cause - capitalism. The nearest I got was “the business model of the fossil fuel industry is incompatible with a habitable planet.”
The exploitation of nature is as fundamental to the profit system as the exploitation of working people. The market system is incapable of preserving the environment for future generations because it cannot take into account the long-term requirements of people and planet. The competition between individual enterprises and industries to make a profitable return on their investment tends to exclude rational and sustainable planning.
Because capitalism promotes the accumulation of capital on a never-ending and always expanding scale it cannot be sustainable. It is very feasible that we can organise society in harmony with nature’s limits. But it is impossible unless the profit motive is removed from determining production in human society.
The author wants the continuation of the market system and this means the continuation of the capitalist system which is the cause of the problems of global warming in the first place.
Can she answer the question how to achieve a zero growth, sustainable society whilst retaining a market system which includes an irresistible, built-in pressure to increase sales for profit and where if sales collapse, society tends to break down in recession, unemployment and financial crisis.
