As the ecological crisis deepens, nearing the infamous Tipping Point – 
taking us closer to planetary catastrophe – we are being led to believe 
that an imminent “greening” of the world economy will deliver us from a 
very dark future. Somehow, against all logic, we have adopted a 
collective faith in the willingness of ruling governments and 
corporations to do the right thing. Carbon footprints will be 
drastically reduced thanks to a combination of market stratagems and 
technological magic. While greenhouse mitigation seamlessly advances, 
the ruling forces can return to what they do best – indulge their 
religion of endless accumulation and growth.
