Mis-education unleashed

Obama just said, “Never mind the naysayers, the fact is our economy is growing again, we gained 290,000 jobs….”

You don’t want to grow the economy, guy.

We have one sphere to work with, Earth, and it is finite, like all other spheres.  Fuck it up with more growth fueled by fossil energy, and we all have dead oceans of toxin, magnitudes more smog-caused death and disease, and less species to sustain life.

More growth is an awful idea, President Obama.  Truly awful.  Unless you mean growth of ecosystems, resilience, and cooperation.  290,000 more ecologists and land stewards would be a good start.  Not a third of a million more tools of Wal-Mort.
