Planet or Profit

As the global impacts of anthropomorphic climate disruption continue to intensify, corporations and the global elite continue to plunder our planet, subjecting areas of the planet that already face fresh-water scarcity issues and other environmental contamination problems to still greater risks from various forms of pollution.

Climate Disruption DispatchesIt is not clear whether we have already passed a tipping point such that human survival beyond the next few decades cannot be assured, but what is overwhelmingly clear is that capitalism - and the drive for profits no matter what the threat to the ecosystem all humanity depends upon - is a force for global destruction.

In this space, we'll gather the work of Truthout writers and contributors as they investigate the overall systemic threats to the ecosystem, how they are imbricated in the organization of our society, possible forms of mitigation, and how specific environments and communities suffer from transglobal corporate profit-seeking.
