Capitalism will lead us to death

The recent edition of Time magazine talked about “The clean energy myth”. I’ve wanted to find more research about this topic for a while, I’m glad Time talked about it and I didn’t have to find it on some conspiracy theory forum site. Some people would just believe what they hear from the mainstream media, anything with bio- and eco- are pretty much bound to be environmental friendly. Well if you are one of those, please think twice before you support those products. It maybe just another greedy environmental UNfriendly company behind it.

Here’s a quote from Time magazine “biofuel… it’s dramatically accelerating global warming … Corn ethanol, always environementally suspect, turns out to be environmentally disastrous.” The chain effect of farmers moving to framing biofuel products causing food prices rising and deforestation of rainforest to make way for more land is just the perfect example of capitalism gone bad. The world is seemingly controlled by the few trillionaires, most people in life just don’t have a choice other than following where the money is.
