A planet money can't buy

Pres Obama’s declaration that BP will pay for clean-up efforts in the Gulf of Mexico is symbolic of capital’s hubris and naivete based on the idea that cash can solve all problems. The magnitude of the ongoing BP Gulf gusher is beyond a payment plan. The long term degradation of the fisheries, the die off of animal and plant life, effects on the tourist industry along Alabama and Florida’s panhandle will be irreparable. How big a check will BP write? … How many lives human and otherwise are worth our lust for bigger, better, stronger, faster, newer, next new things?

Time we looked seriously at alternative forms of energy as well as a sustainable way of life.

All the money we have + all the money we can print can not buy us another life nurturing planet.
