Corporate Control and the Climate Meltdown

Folks, please share our videos! This is not a spectator sport. We need you to get active (and clever) in sharing the truth about climate change. The denialist side has huge funding. We just have the truth and intention of our viewers to work with. Use the embed code or share the link (to video or channel).
Dr. Luiz Marques, Professor of Environmental History at the State University of Campinas in São Paolo, Brazil shares an in-depth exploration and explanation of how our current ‘neoclassical’ economic system is responsible for the climate crisis and ecological deterioration, leading to a probable collapse of local ecosystems, and the general inability to grow food for human consumption.
Dr. Marques, who is a proponent of Ecological Economics (http://isecoeco.org) discusses capitalism as the precursor and root cause of the current environmental collapse tightening its grip on the Earth’s biosphere. He argues that an economy based on continual exponential economic growth, which is entirely the program of our current ‘neoclassical economics’ taught universally in business schools around the world, where nature and the environment are considered mere externalities, is unsustainable. A philosophy professor specializing in logic, Dr. Marques provides the logical connections between current economic systems and ecological devastation.
