BOOK REVIEW:
GREEN WASHED: WHY WE CAN’T
BUY OUR WAY TO A GREEN PLANET

A powerful critique of green shopping that falls short on solutions

MINING BOOM ACCELERATES LAND GRABBING
AND ECOSYSTEM DESTRUCTION
http://climateandcapitalism.com/?p=6758
“This trend is now a major driver of land grabbing globally, and poses
a significant threat to the world’s indigenous communities, farmers
and local food production systems, as well as to precious water,
forests, biodiversity, critical ecosystems and climate change.”

MALAYSIA: LARGEST ENVIRONMENTAL PROTEST
CONDEMNS TOXIC REFINERY PLANS
http://climateandcapitalism.com/?p=6751
“The message is clear. The people have spoken up… The people do not
want the Lynas Project in Malaysia”

FUKUSHIMA DISASTER WAS CAUSED BY
JAPAN’S NUCLEAR AUTHORITIES, NOT THE TSUNAMI
http://climateandcapitalism.com/?p=6746

the age-old story of cutting corners to protect profits over people”

DVD NOW AVAILABLE: “A DARKER SHADE OF GREEN:
REDD ALERT AND THE FUTURE OF FORESTS”
http://climateandcapitalism.com/?p=6740

NATURAL GAS: ANOTHER MAGIC BULLET
THAT WON’T STOP CLIMATE CHANGE
http://climateandcapitalism.com/?p=6738
“If you take 40 years to switch over entirely to natural gas, you
won’t see any substantial decrease in global temperatures for up to
250 years. There’s almost no climate value in doing it.”

NO TIME TO WASTE ON TRANSITION TO GREEN ENERGY
http://climateandcapitalism.com/?p=6734
Even if we convert totally tomorrow, it would be decades before the
transition from coal-based power brings temperature benefits. We have
delayed too long already and it is time to get started.
