Green Capitalism: Why it Can't Work
Fernwood Publishing, 2014 - Capitalism - 168 pages
What should be done to resolve the climate crisis? Daniel Tanuro argues that government measures - eco-taxes, commodification of natural resources and carbon trading - do not tackle the main problem: the drive for profit. Evidence from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other sources demonstrates the impossibility of a sustainable "green capitalism." Green Capitalism includes a critique of popular writers on the environmental crisis, ranging from Jared Diamond to Hans Jonas, and it discusses the economic and technological transition scenarios. It also includes a critical assessment of the contributions of Marxist writers such as John Bellamy Foster, Paul Burkett and Ernest Mandel.
