whereby the basest human motives (selfishness and greed) are
considered to magically - as if by some invisible hand - lead society
and the planet to some healthy and even noble outcome (vs. responsible
equitable economic planning)
3. overpopulation (vs. concern for future generations)
4. continued extraction and use of hydrocarbons (now including
unconventional oil, coal, and methane (not just oil)) (vs. source-
shifting to renewables and reducing and eliminating the use of
polluting goods and services)
5. displacement of indigenous peoples from their traditional lands to
feed the avarice of governments and greedy corporations (instead of
recognizing the rights of indigenous peoples)

just a start. . .but i think these need to be addressed.


(suggestions forwarded do not fall under the banner of corporate behavior.
How would we unify these  messages?
I have been listening in on the compost and sustainability thread - they need more buckets for compost.   - CJ
