Surprise: Warmist Says Capitalism Is Killing The Planet

Funny how so much of the ‘climate change’ dogma revolves around hardcore Progressive/Marxist/Socialist/etc beliefs

Capitalism is killing the planet and needs to change, says investor Jeremy Grantham

Jeremy Grantham, the longtime investor famous for calling the last two major bubbles in the market, is urging capitalists and “mainstream economists” to recognize the looming threat of climate change.

“Capitalism and mainstream economics simply cannot deal with these problems. Mainstream economics largely ignore [them],” Grantham, who co-founded GMO in 1977, said Tuesday in an impassioned speech at the Morningstar Investment Conference in Chicago. “We deforest the land, we degrade our soils, we pollute and overuse our water and we treat air like an open sewer, and we do it all off the balance sheet.”

This negligence is due in large part to how short-sighted corporations can be, Grantham said. “Anything that happens to a corporation over 25 years out doesn’t exist for them, therefore, as I like to say, grandchildren have no value” to them, he said.

Grantham has been outspoken about his concerns over climate change for years. In 1997, he started the Grantham Foundation for the Protection of the Environment, which gives money to entities that look to protect the environment. Grantham’s company also launched the GMO Climate Change fund last year, which invests in wind and solar companies.

The article doesn’t say what he recommends, but, what are the alternatives to capitalism? Warmists are always saying that the government needs to be in control. They’re authoritarians.

And, interestingly, Grantham made quite a bit of money off of capitalism before deciding he didn’t like it for Other People.

Oh, and how well has Communism and Socialism done in countries like China and the Soviet Union?

    And the other shoe drops. They finally admit that communism on a global stage is the agenda.
