Shills for "The Future We Choose" - round up #2.

Not a coincidence. The majority of those promoting this book are both white & wealthy. #Ecological crisis will never be resolved by the ruling classes. It cannot be resolved within the same economic system that created it.
The Guardian rolls out the red carpet for "The Future We Choose". Par for the capitalist course.

As the former CEO of #WeMeanBusiness, recently appointed by the UK Govt as the High Level Climate Action Champion for UN climate talks, #COP26, of course Nigel Topping is excited.
"It's about human lives"

This anthropocentric ideology appears to be an infectious disease amongst the "enlightened eco-capitalists". It demonstrates that they are absolutely disconnected from the natural world.

#TheFutureTheyChoose will reboot the system destroying Earth.

"The Green New Deal" is going to take movement tactics. Bullshit. It's global - sitting in the wings. Your consent is being engineered. Spending billions to have you demand & "fight" for it. They play with you like a cat plays with a mouse before it decapitates it. For fun.
Who else is tasked with building the social license required to implement the Global Green New Deal?

Let's start with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, & May Boeve, Executive Director of 350-DOT-org.

The #NonProfitIndustrialComplex: an extension of the ruling class.

January 23, 2020, World Economic Forum: "Striking a Green New Deal"

Note again, that the UN partnered with WEF on June 13, 2020.

Greta™

In reality, the trademark should be property of those that created the brand. Namely, We Mean Business in partnership with the #UN & partner, World Economic Forum.

Callum Grieve: We Mean Business architect. Thunberg handler. #Branding expert.

We Mean Business: 1,176 corporations rep. 24.8 trillion market cap.

Aside from how ridiculous it is to feign disapproval that a #brand created by/serving the most powerful institutions/ corporations on the planet is being misused, I want to touch upon a couple of things.
Jan 29 2020, GT: "I apologize to anyone who has been contacted - and even misled - by this kind of behavior."

Sep 25 2019, GT: "...my clothes, my behaviour and my differences. They come up with every thinkable lie and conspiracy theory."

1) behavior
2) behaviour

This is going to be a very important thread.

#WorldEconomicForum
#FourthIndustrialRevolution
#GretaThunberg
#SavingCapitalism with
#StakeholderCapitalism
#RedefiningCapitalism
#NewDealForNature

Let's start here, with this misleading article shared by the GT account.
To start. From the article:

"The theme of this year’s gathering in #Davos is “#stakeholders for a cohesive and sustainable world”. According to the forum’s website, leaders will meet to discuss ideas and improve our global progress on climate change."

theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
What is not shared is the primary focus:

"Focus of the meeting will be on renewing the concept of stakeholder #capitalism to overcome income inequality, societal division and the #climate crisis."

This #WEF release is new (Jan 14 2020) - but the focus & theme is not.

I would hate to miss #FridaysForFinance

Let's start with this.

Oct. 15 2019, Thunberg:

"I have never said that we can’t have economic growth. I have just said that instead of focusing on economic growth & talking about money, we should talk about human lives & ecosystems."
That sounds a lot like this from Klein:

"But I have never said that we need to "slay" "ditch" or "dismantle" #capitalism in order to fight climate change."



@empathiser
@empathiser No wonder Susan Rockefeller (pictured), Angel Gurría, The Guardian etc. etc. - all love Klein so much.

Just like clockwork. World Economic Forum - the movie.

On October 28, 2019, the documentary The Forum, opened the 62nd edition of German documentary festival (DOK Leipzig).

Because "to change everything, we need everyone".

Director Marcus Vetter: "Eventually we have to overcome some of our preconceptions. The elite may not appear as evil as we think they are. There are good and bad people..."
con't: "The film is asking the question, 'Is there not maybe still a middle way, one in which everyone comes together instead of separating from one another?'"

Today we are going to play a game. The game is called "Which is more valuable". This is not a parody. This was published as an interactive game on BBC in 2015. It's demonstrating how markets can (& will) value the natural world.

Let's play.

If you said "acre of oyster reef" - you were right.

Next question...
#2

Which is more valuable?
