"The connection between pollution and labor exploitation has been true since the earliest days of the Industrial Revolution."
"The greatest tragedy of all is that so much of this was eminently avoidable."
"It's not that the companies moving their production to China wanted to drive up emissions; they were after cheap labour; but exploited workers and an exploited planet are, it turns out, a package deal. A destabilized climate is the cost of deregulated, global capitalism, its unintended, yet unavoidable consequence."
Because, underneath all of this is the real truth we have been avoiding: climate change isn’t an “issue” to add to the list of things to worry about, next to health care and taxes. It is a civilizational wake-up call. A powerful message—spoken in the language of fires, floods, droughts, and extinctions—telling us that we need an entirely new economic model and a new way of sharing this planet. Telling us that we need to evolve.
