#210 / Insanity And The Green Economy

This is from Pablo Solon Romero, Bolivia's Ambassador to the United Nations, in a statement reprinted in The Rights Of Nature:
Albert Einstein said, "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results." Sadly, this is true of the "green economy": it applies the logic of the market to Nature in the hope that the law of supply and demand will somehow put humanity on a path that is different from our current one of rupture with Nature. We are trying to fix a problem by doing the same things that got us into the problem in the first place.
This sort of reminds me of the first rule of holes...
