Maude Barlow: Market-Based Solutions will continue Earth’s Destruction

2010 December 06, by Chapter Council

Maude Barlow: With Only Market-Based Solutions on the Table “The Continued Destruction of the Earth…Can Go on Quite Happily”.

Democracy Now talks with Maude Barlow in Cancun about the COP16 Climate talks in Cancun. The market will not solve this problem, we need a much more comprehensive program of direct government regulation, relocalization of our economies, grassroots action and most importantly, a realization that Earth is not a resource to be exploited. It is where we live, and what sustains us, and as many people have said, “there’s no bailout if the Earth’s bubble bursts”!

Do come and share your thoughts on climate change and climate justice at our People’s Assembly Wednesday, Dec 8th.
