The really inconvenient truth

From BBC News, April 22:

Opening a UN forum on the global impact of climate change on indigenous peoples, [Evo] Morales said that capitalism should be scrapped if the planet is to be saved from the effects of climate change.

"If we want to save our planet earth, we have a duty to put an end to the capitalist system," he said.

Bolivia's president said unbridled industrial development was responsible for the pillaging of natural resources.
