Howie Hawkins on Environment

Green Challenger

 


Convert corporate agribusiness to organic agriculture

The Green New Deal will convert corporate agribusiness to organic agriculture. Conversion to regenerative agriculture is needed to combat climate change by drawing atmospheric carbon into the biosphere and to end the pesticides and habitat destruction of industrial farming that is a major cause of the mass extinctions of species now underway. We want to replace monocultural, chemicalized, and industrialized corporate agribusiness with family and cooperative organic farms.

Environmental collapse follows from capitalist system

THE ECOSOCIALIST CASE AGAINST CAPITALISM: Under a capitalist system, we cannot solve the central problems of our time.

ECOLOGICAL DESTRUCTION: We will never reverse pending planetary environmental collapse as long as we have a capitalist economy where competition for profits drives the blind, relentless growth that is consuming the environment, heating up the planet, and destroying ecological foundations of human civilization.
