An unholy trinity

Print
Written by Robert Jensen

For the last30 years, our corporations, politicians, and the media they largely control--an "unholy trinity"--have actively resisted the mounting scientific evidence on the causes and consequences of global warming.  What has been the corporate and governmental response to the sudden disappearance of Arctic ice?  Oil companies are excited about the prospect of accessing new oil fields.  Nation-states are jockeying to claim possession of new territories whose fossil fuel and mineral resources will soon be available for exploitation.  This behavior reveals the the gap between the economic and political systems we have and the ones we need.
