Capitalism is the cause of the climate crisis

[[Capitalism]] is the cause of the [[climate crisis]].

The comprehensive ecological crisis is an expression of the contradiction between the planetary boundaries of growth and the endless accumulation dynamics of capital.

– [[Revolutionary Strategies on a Heated Earth]]

capitalist mode of production practices a [[social metabolism]] with nature that pushes it to disrespect [[planetary boundaries]]

– [[Revolutionary Strategies on a Heated Earth]]

The β€˜treadmill’ of accumulation leads to a planetary overload and to an β€œoverall break in the human relation to nature arising from an alienated system of capital without end.”

– [[Revolutionary Strategies on a Heated Earth]]

This ecological rift is the result of a social rift: the domination of humans over humans.

– [[Revolutionary Strategies on a Heated Earth]]

Sounds very similar to [[Bookchin]]. Interesting to hear that Marx said this also.
