video: In honor of Schwarzenegger’s Milton Friedman Day: the Biotic Baking Brigade takes action

In commemoration of the day former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger gave to the notorious neoliberal economic pioneer Milton Friedman, we offer this video from the Biotic Baking Brigade.  The BBB became famous for its targeted use of the tactic of pieing corporate and economic criminals.

The video is especially timely as a retort to President Obama’s State of the Union address, which incessantly emphasized the need to grow the economy in the face of escalating crises around the planet–which are directly connected to the Capitalist obsession with growth at any cost.

Enjoy!  –The GJEP Team

Video: Our Forests Aren’t Fuel–Wetlands up in Smoke

Note: future plans for the forests of the Southeast are to replace them with fast growing freeze tolerant GE eucalyptus trees for biomass production, pulp and whatever else they can think of.

“We Have to Consume Less”: Scientists Call For Radical Economic Overhaul to Avert Climate Crisis

Nov 21, 2013, Source: Democracy Now!

A pair of climate scientists are calling for what some may view as a shocking solution to the global warming crisis: a rethinking of the economic order in the United States and other industrialized nations. Kevin Anderson and Alice Bows-Larkin of the influential Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research in England say many of the solutions proposed by world leaders to prevent “runaway global warming” will not be enough to address the scale of the crisis. They have called for “radical and immediate de-growth strategies in the United States, EU and other wealthy nations.” Anderson says that to avoid an increase in temperature of 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit), the world would require a “revolutionary change to the political and economic hegemony.”
