Aggregated idiocy

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

We are at a point in time in Australia where environmental consultants are having to recommend to government which rivers will need to die in order for others to survive. Such is the legacy of our occupation. Man-made ecocide follows the banners of "progress" and "growth". But the reports will get buried; another ecological violation will go unaccounted; another government policy, greenwashed as "sustainability", will seduce and delude a largely urban constituency.

The often-invoked term 'sustainability' tends to obscure the seriousness of the situation; clearly no culture which sets in motion massive processes of biospheric degradation which it has normalised, and which it cannot respond to or correct, can hope to survive for very long. Val Plumwood, 2002
