Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 74

Power, Ecology, and Society

EPPThe way in which our society is structured ensures that environmental degradation and destruction is written into the actual function of our society. Trade agreements not only allow rich countries and companies to exploit the cheap labor of poor nations, or to simply plunder their wealth and resources, but we also "offshore" our environmental degradation to poor countries, leaving profoundly negative side effects for health and ecology around the world. This process is called 'ecological unequal exchange,' and it is written into the system itself.

Environmental destruction threatens the future of our species and all life on this planet, yet the decisions and actions of powerful institutions in the world today are inevitably advancing the process of global ecological destruction, and with that, our extinction. But there are people struggling against this process... and we all need to start working together.
