"humans are the disease" factoid actualy just ecofascist rhetoric. average person ruins 0 planets per year. Capitalism Georg, who lives in cave & ruins over 10,000 each day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted

@tom I agree, though there’s two perspectives here: a) the eco-fascist rhetoric is idiotic and misses the obvious truth that it’s a small number of capitalist slum lords doing the damage... but b) on the other hand, from the perspective of the planet humans are a pathogen inducing a planetary fever response that will solve the planets problem if we let those few with money and power continue.

In my mind the key is to ensure we don’t validate A, but make better decisions without denying of B

@radicalgraffiti @tom I wasn’t suggesting they could. But where do you delineate a planet? At the dirt and bodies of water? Or at the organisms that exist on it?

The fact is the climate is changing and we play a part in that. That’s akin to a fever reaction. The planet would likely recover and not end up a desolate mars, but we will be gone. Unless we change what capitalism is doing.

The ef is too short sighted and just blames humanity in general, instead of trying to fix the prob
