Pogo was right.

We lost the battle to stop climate change on planet Earth because we chose to follow leaders who take us down the wrong roads. Like everything else in American politics, the “green” movement is sold out to the wealthy interests of corporations.
In the midst of our Anthropocene human-caused extinction event, the “environmental” movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It’s too little, too late and it won’t fix the problem.
Removed from the debate are the only concepts which might save us from ourselves: get a grip on our out-of-control human presence and the greed of our consumption.
Human population growth and economic growth simply cannot be infinite on a finite planet.
Why is this not THE issue?
Because it would be bad for profits, bad for business, of course.
