Who is responsible for the other half of “Big Ideas and Innovation cycle”, the products and outcomes thrown at the consumer – outcomes like The Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
An economic system that continues to reward those whose products are destroying and trending life towards eventual extinction is absurd indeed (if not insane), to say the least.
Dare we look at the cumulative outcomes of the big ideas and innovations that we support and permit profit to be made?
THE MOST CRUCIAL OF THESE HALF BAKED INNOVATIONS IS THE STAGNATION OF OUR CONCEPT OF ENERGY.
A world gone mad Greed at a Glance.
