Addressing both environmental destruction and social inequality

Just how dumb do they think we are?

Who would believe that destroying the ecosystems on which all life depends, while dis-employing more and more people, is somehow good for the economy? Whose economy?

But that’s exactly the fiction that has been successfully marketed to us: jobs versus the environment.

The next economy that’s now emerging is a restoration economy. It’s founded in restoring the ecosystems whose life-support services nature provides for free, like clean air and water, pollination and healthy soil. It’s also founded in job-creation – putting people to work on the mammoth endeavor of restoring the health of both lands and communities.

It’s simple, really: Taking care of nature means taking care of people – and taking care of people means taking care of nature.

From the series, Bioneers, Revolution from the Heart of Nature, an episode titled The Green-Collar Economy: Jobs, Justice and Prosperity with Van Jones and Majora Carter.
