  • Capitalism Generally refers to an economic system in which the means of production are privately owned and operated for profit, and in which investments, distribution, income, production and pricing of goods and services are determined through the operation of a market. The ideological and intellectual background for the Industrial Revolution. Industrialisation process Introduction of mechanical power (originally steam) to replace human and animal power in the production of goods and services. Corporate Capitalism The principal mechanism for concentrating capital and power. Microsoft ® Encarta ® 2007. © 1993-2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. Imperialism  Practice by which powerful nations or peoples seek to extend and maintain control or influence over weaker nations or peoples, associated with the economic expansion of capitalist states or corporations This nonsense is often piously referred to as God's "invisible hand" at work. In operation, however, this rationalisation for a few individuals to accumulate mountains of capital by trampling on the many has imposed grave injury on both society and environment. Hence, a "visible foot" more aptly describes Smith's notion.

    3. 3. Overview <ul><li>Review of Story of Stuff Concepts </li></ul><ul><li>Basic Environmental Principles </li></ul><ul><li>Development of Human Societies </li></ul><ul><li>Current system in Crisis </li></ul><ul><li>Different kinds of Environmentalism </li></ul><ul><li>The correct environmental Principle </li></ul>
    4. 4. Review of Story of Stuff Concepts <ul><li>materials economy = extraction to production to distribution to consumption to disposal. </li></ul><ul><li>system in crisis = linear system and we live on a finite planet and you can not run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely </li></ul><ul><li>People live and work all along this system. And some people in this system matter a little more than others; some have a little more say. </li></ul><ul><li>Government and Corporation </li></ul>
    5. 5. <ul><li>extraction = natural resource exploitation = trashing the planet. </li></ul><ul><li>If everybody consumed at U.S. rates, we would need 3 to 5 planets. </li></ul><ul><li>So, my country’s response to this limitation is simply to go take someone else’s! This is the Third World, which—some would say—is another word for our stuff that somehow got on someone else’s land. </li></ul><ul><li>And what about the people who live here? Well. According to these guys, they don’t own these resources even if they’ve been living there for generations, they don’t own the means of production and they’re not buying a lot of stuff. And in this system, if you don’t own or buy a lot of stuff, you don’t have value. </li></ul>Extraction
    6. 6. <ul><li>“ production“ = we use energy to mix toxic chemicals in with the natural resources to make toxic contaminated products </li></ul><ul><li>one of the “beauties” of this system = the erosion of local environments and economies here ensures a constant supply of people with no other option. Globally 200,000 people a day are moving from environments that have sustained them for generations, into cities many to live in slums, looking for work, no matter how toxic that work may be. So, you see, it is not just resources that are wasted along this system, but people too. Whole communities get wasted </li></ul><ul><li>Move the dirty factories overseas. Pollute someone else’s land! </li></ul>Production
    7. 7. <ul><li>Production = “selling all this toxic contaminated junk as quickly as possible.” The goal here is to keep the prices down, keep the people buying and keep the inventory moving </li></ul><ul><li>externalizing the costs = real costs of making stuff aren’t captured in the price </li></ul><ul><li>So, who did pay? People in the third world and poor communities = paid with the loss of their natural resource base. These people paid with the loss of their clean air, with increasing asthma and cancer rates, etc </li></ul>Distribution
    8. 8. <ul><li>golden arrow of consumption = heart of the system, the engine that drives it. It is so important [to propping up this whole flawed system] that protecting this arrow is a top priority for both corporation and government </li></ul><ul><li>Our primary identity has become that of consumer, keep the materials flowing = designed </li></ul><ul><li>“ The American economy’s ultimate purpose is to produce more consumer goods.” </li></ul><ul><li>Planned obsolescence is another word for “designed for the dump.” </li></ul><ul><li>Perceived obsolescence convinces us to throw away stuff that is still perfectly useful. </li></ul>Consumption Disposal

    28. 28. <ul><li>Racketeer na NGOs </li></ul><ul><li>Ki-ni-criticize ang mga gobyerno at malalaking neogsyante sa pagkasira ng kalikasan. </li></ul><ul><li>Sa kabilang banda ang kanilang ki-ni-criticize din ang kanilang nilalapitan upang hingan ng pondo </li></ul><ul><li>Pakunwari lamang ang kritisismo upang makahingi ng pondo </li></ul><ul><li>Repormistang neo-liberal </li></ul><ul><li>Tugon sa isyung pangkapaligiran ay pagmumulat sa mga politiko at pag-la-lobby para sa reporma tungo sa pangangalaga sa kalikasan </li></ul><ul><li>Inililigaw ang isyu sa tunay na problema – matinding pagkagahaman ng kapitalistang bansa sa likas-yaman </li></ul>
    29. 29. Ang tamang pagtinggin sa usaping pangkapaligiran
    30. 30. <ul><li>Paano ba nagsimula na magkaroon ng interes ang tao na pangalagaan ang kalikasan? </li></ul><ul><li>Sa kalikasan nanggagaling ang pangangailangan ng tao at batay sa karanasan, nalaman niya ang pakikipag-ugnayan sa kalikasan na nagdudulot ng pakinabang at ang nagdudulot ng perwisyo </li></ul><ul><li>Nakita ng tao na patuloy na nga ang pagkasira ng kalikasan na tumampok sa pagpasok ng kapitalismo at monopolyo kapitalismo </li></ul><ul><li>Dekada 60, ipinasok </li></ul><ul><li>ng sistemang kapitalista </li></ul><ul><li>ang environmentalism </li></ul>
    31. 31. <ul><li>Isyu sa environment ay usaping pang-ekonomiya at pampulitika </li></ul><ul><li>Ang paninindigan para sa kalikasan ay paninindigan para sa inaaping malawak na mamamayan na pinagkakaitan ng patas na karapatan sa paggamit sa likas-yaman </li></ul><ul><li>Ang pakikipaglaban para sa kalikasan ay pakikipaglaban para sa tunay na kaunlaran, sa kapakinabangan ng malawak na mamamayan </li></ul>
    32. 32. <ul><li>Sa madaling sabi, taglay nito ang sumusunod na katangian: </li></ul><ul><li>Kontra monopolyo-kapitalismo </li></ul><ul><li>Makamamamayan </li></ul><ul><li>Progresibo at siyentipiko </li></ul>
    33. 33. System in crisis! <ul><li>We should all recycle. But recycling is not enough. Recycling will never be enough = it doesn’t get to the core of the problem </li></ul><ul><li>But the good thing about such an all pervasive problem is that there are so many points of intervention. </li></ul><ul><li>There are people working here on saving forests and here on clean production. People working on labor rights and fair trade and conscious consuming and blocking landfills and incinerators and, very importantly, on taking back our government so it is really is by the people for the people. </li></ul><ul><li>All this work is critically important but things are really gonna start moving when we see the connections, when we see the big picture. When people along this system get united, we can reclaim and transform this linear system into something new, a system that doesn’t waste resources or people. </li></ul>
    34. 34. Some people say it’s unrealistic, idealistic, that it can’t happen. But I say the ones who are unrealistic are those that want to continue on the old path. That’s dreaming. Remember that old way didn’t just happen by itself. It’s not like gravity that we just gotta live with. People created it. And we’re people too. So let’s create something new.
    35. 35. Thank you. <ul><li>The struggle for the environment is a struggle for the people. </li></ul>
