I finally got around to watching the Apocalypse Cow documentary (Channel 4, George Monbiot) the other night. Like Monbiot, I do not eat meat/fish or drink milk. I'm still gathering my thoughts on the doc,. however, here are my thoughts thus far.
All nature is now being recognized as an object to be bought/sold, traded on wall street. And this is what perhaps bother me most about the doc. As I can see the intent / purpose behind it. It's not as though Monbiot does not know about the #NewDealForNature. He does.
Consider most, if not all of his "allies" are at the helm or support the #NewDealForNature, led by WEF, WWF, UN, Natural Capital Coalition, Conservation Int., etc. And of course, both Monbiot & Thunberg did the promotional video for CI. #Celebrity is utilized to serve capital.

This is going to be a very important thread.

#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."

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.

"Happy 2020. It's going to be a big year"

"Will our government and business leaders act on the triple emergency of climate, nature and poverty, or will business as usual win?...
"What would life be like in 2030 if restoring nature, stabilising our climate & making strides in human development & poverty reduction were daily priorities for all gov'ts & every business for the decade starting in 2020?"

Isra Hirsi, daughter of US congresswoman Ilhan Omar, is co-founder of US Youth Climate Strike. When it launched (2019) it essentially mirrored Thunberg's campaign. Today it is a MoveOn for youth.

@JohnStauber can tell you all about MoveOn - a front party for the US democrats.
I can tell you about MoveOn too. It is a co-founder of Avaaz, an NGO that I have researched & written extensively about since 2012.

Avaaz: Imperialist Pimps of Militarism, Protectors of the Oligarchy, Trusted Facilitators of War:

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.

Next question...
