Capitalism has generated massive wealth for some, but it has devastated the planet and has failed to improve Human well-being at scale. Capitalism has failed people and the planet through overproduction, over-consumption, waste, greed, and inequality.
Corporations are responding to consumer demand and pressure from Wall Street. Corporations are able to continue engaging in increasingly environmentally exploitative behaviour by obscuring the link between endless economic growth and worsening environmental destruction.
Corporations have used their wealth to amplify contrarian views of climate change] and create an impression of greater scientific uncertainty than actually exists. Corporate capitalism is committed to the relentless pursuit of growth, even if it ravages the planet and threatens Human health.
Corporations are locked in a cycle of exploiting the World‘s resources in ever more creative ways. Corporations have an interest in suppressing the idea of Human responsibility for climate change and use their money to bolster scepticism.
