Capitalism is murdering all life on Earth but please, can we hear more about the Instagram posts of Israel Folau?
The permafrost is thawing 70 years ahead of schedule. Greenland is melting three times faster than 20 years ago. Himalayan glacier melting has doubled since the year 2000. Millions of hectares of pristine tropical rainforest were destroyed in 2018. 36 people have died in India in one of their longest ever heatwaves, and the country may soon be uninhabitable.
Capitalism is wiping out the biosphere and we have less than twelve years for a global transition to eco-socialism or we’re all doomed.
But seriously, can we please have more front-page stories about how an entitled multi-millionaire Australian rugby player lacks even a rudimentary understanding of contract law and a basic comprehension of the teachings of Jesus Christ?
