The Materials Economy

The Materials Economy

Stuff moves through a system... from extraction to production to distribution to consumption to disposal. All together, it’s called the materials economy. We are using too much stuff.

 

We are cutting and mining and hauling and trashing the place so fast that we’re undermining the planet’s very ability for people to live here. We’re running out of resources. We chop down trees, we blow up mountains to get the metals inside, we use up all the water and we wipe out the animals. We are using too much stuff.

Now I know this can be hard to hear, but it’s the truth and we’ve gotta deal with it. In the past three decades alone, one-third of the planet’s natural resources base have been consumed. Gone.

You can’t have too much education, so free the system and make it overflow. And if we really want to build a better nation, justice is what we have to know.
