A recent authoritative report has estimated that the world spends 6,000 times more on environmentally harmful subsidies than on carbon offsets. Indeed, the global value of governmental support for the most polluting industries—fossil fuels, agriculture, forestry, water, construction, transport, and marine capture fisheries—is estimated to be over $1.8 trillion per year.
This selfish act of Fake Economics, in pursuit of equally Fake Greenwashing, is having a tragic impact on the lives, health, wellbeing, as well as the rights of people and mother earth in many parts of the world, in countless countries and regions.
Children, men and women, young and old are digging and dying to satisfy our appetite for ‘Green’ devices and electric cars. The entire web of life is in pain and agony. They are calling us: “We are dying. There is no food. Our fish are dead. Our trees are dead. We can’t take it any longer.”
We must not remain desensitised to the tragedy that is unfolding everywhere around us as we go on ‘GREENING’.
