Capitalism is killing the planet – it’s time to stop buying into our own destruction

We are rightly horrified by the image of a seahorse with its tail wrapped around a cotton bud, but apparently unconcerned about the elimination of entire marine ecosystems by the fishing industry. We tut and shake our heads, and keep eating our way through the life of the sea.
You know what's funny about this? Not only to US Citizens eat only 7-10 types of seafood, thereby over-fishing the **** out of those animals, but you should see the weight the fishing industry carries with Ocean Management departments.

I work for a trade group getting clean energy up and running. In the US, one of the laggard industries is Offshore Wind, and the fisherman's union bitches up a god damn storm. Meanwhile, we saw what 5 months off of capitalism did for the skies in LA and New Delhi, and wildlife all over the globe.

We should deunionize to sufficiently undermine capitalism.

Depends on who your target is.

Sorry to those who find this indulgent and boring, but maybe some of you will find this interesting.

It's a general description of the Norwegian economy (mixed capitalist/socialist), including comments on taxation levels, cost of living, workers conditions and the oil fund (the world's largest sovereign wealth fund). Although general, I found the descriptions to be pretty good.
