The disease is now being offered as the cure. Economic growth is merely a measure of how much was extracted from nature to convert to capital. It cannot be a solution to the ecological crises that extractivist money-making caused. The increased availability of financial resources cannot regenerate the life lost in nature through ecological destruction.
New proposals to address the ecological emergencies are neither sustainable nor just. They deny the rights of Mother Earth and of Indigenous people, farmers, fisherfolk, women, working people and the poor, the children and future generations.
