Michael Cavlan on Environment

Green Challenger


Root causes: throw-away society & corporate polluters

Many of our political leaders pay lip service environmental issues. However, their primary focus, is often short sighted. They deal with the symptoms of ecological destruction while we as Greens go to the root cause. This root cause is two-fold: a “throw away society,” and more importantly, corporate polluters being given free rein to pollute for today’s profits at the expense of lives and the environment. Following the two Green Party principles of Ecological Wisdom and Personal Responsibility, it is the responsibility of all of us, individuals, corporate officers, and board members alike to respect the mother earth we live on. This is vital especially here in the United States where five percent of the world’s population consumes 45 percent of the worlds resources.
