Anything else you're interested in is not going to happen if you can't breathe the air and drink the water. Don't sit this one out. Do something.

Carl Sagan

Globalisation is devastating the natural environment. Over consumption, waste and associated pollution is promoted and supported throughout the world to increase the profits of multinational corporations, international banking and powerful elites. The results, however, both in terms of environmental problems and misguided policies disproportionally affect the majority in populations. We know that CO2 affects the atmosphere and can contribute to climate change, although arguments rage about the accuracy of long term predictions . Those same forces that promote existing consumption are now pushing for yet further consumption to transfer to a "green economy" increasing profit and consolidating power in the process. It is difficult to see how this "greenwashing" will result in environmental benefits.

In addition, those with anti-western agendas have co-opted the environmental movement to promote their cause. Demonstrations against western society are enthusiastically attended by those most guilty of consumerism without any sense of irony See Greta & Extinction Rebellion. Free speech is restricted to the corporate endorsed "man made global warming" agenda and debate shut down. This results in many people completely rejecting any calls for environmental action.

Not only would the switch to a less unsustainable, less consumerist, less global way of life improve the environment it would result in a better quality of life, reduce the power of Globalist Elites and reduce our reliance on imported fossil fuel from cultures that directly oppose our way of life.

Sustainability England believes that in crisis there lies opportunity - an opportunity to build a cleaner, safer and more self sufficient world. See Global Warming - A Response
