ENDLESS GROWTH WILL KlLL US ALL!
It is OK – Someday it will not matter!
Paul Farrell runs a column on Market Watch and has repeatedly said constant growth will ruin not only the economy but the earth as follows:
“Capitalists misleading us with the Perpetual Growth myth
Capitalism’s Frankenstein Economics is failing our nation with its core myth of Perpetual Growth, which assumes infinite resources with infinite opportunities for growth, profits, income, and wealth. Ad infinitum.
Though rich and brilliant, American capitalists have a childlike, irrational conviction that they can indefinitely mine, fish, dump, produce, grow and extract resources from the planet’s limited supply, without ever paying a steep price or planning for the day the planet’s resources are exhausted.”
BIG POLLUTION = KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ON THE JUNK PILE!
BIG POLLUTION = A special SHORT TERM IGNORANCE IN FAVOR OF THE END OF HUMAN LIFE ON EARTH.

90 Companies = 63% of man-made global warming emissions
30% of emissions were produced just by the top 20 companies.
8.9% was from Government-run oil and coal companies in the former Soviet Union
8.6% was from China’s government-run entities.
3.5% was from ChevronTexaco was the leading corporate emitter
3.2% was from Exxon
2.5% was from BP
9.2% total from Chevron, Exxon and BP = most responsible for climate change
Oil, Coal, Gas companies = Contribute most carbon = Fund denial campaigns
“There are thousands of oil, gas and coal producers in the world. But the decision makers, the CEOs, or the ministers of coal and oil if you narrow it down to just one person, they could all fit on a Greyhound bus or two.”
— Richard Heede, at the Climate Accountability Institute in Colorado
50% of emissions were produced just in the past 25 years
Substantial reserves of fossil fuel if burned create even greater risk of climate change.
30 Years to exhaust the World’s Carbon Budget – The Danger Zone 2C warming
90 companies cumulative emissions of carbon dioxide and methane 1751 to 2010 = 914 gigaton of CO2 emissions = 87 produce oil, gas and coal and 7 make cement.
50 investor-owned firms Chevron, Exxon, BP , and Royal Dutch Shell and coal producers such as British Coal Corp, Peabody Energy and BHP Billiton.
31 state-owned companies – Saudi Arabia’s Saudi Aramco, Russia’s Gazprom and Norway’s Statoil.
9 government run producing mainly coal in China, former Soviet Union, North Korea and Poland
“By highlighting the way in which a relatively small number of large companies are at the heart of the current carbon-intensive growth model, this report highlights that fundamental challenge.”
— John Ashton, UK’s chief climate change negotiator

NEW ECO-ECONOMlSTS see, THlNK and plan for the long-term and know that traditional ECONOMlSTS’ and capitaIists’ THlNKlNG will lead to CATASTROPHES that soon will exhaust EARTH’s RESOURCES. UN and the PENTAGON STUDlES predict population growth will create unsustainable NATURAL-RESOURCES demands as early as 2O2O. No, we won’t wake up without a massive COLLAPSE.
OLD TRADITIONAL ECONOMlSTS are empIoyees of GROWTH CAPlTALlSTS with SHORT TERM VlEWS – They THlNK SHORT-TERM, react SHORT-TERM, pursue SHORT-TERM goals like banks, big CORPORATlONS, INSTlTUTlONAL lNVESTORS, THlNK-TANKS, government driven by daily returns, quarterly earnings, annual BONUSES. Even SHORT election cycles! If we can’t survive the SHORT, long-term is lRRELEVANT.
