In a world where it matters more which country will prevail in a trade war, we forget one of the most important things. The health of our planet.
Does it not matter that our planet is dying, along with it many animals endangered or, worse, on the brink of extinction?
We have innovations that could save our planet, yet people still focus on the bottom line. For any innovation to sell and even gain interest, how much is saved and how much cost of production reduced has to be mentioned. Because if that’s not included in the pitch, who cares if it will help the world. Corporations have to know how much they could save — financially speaking.
But really, it matters not which country wins this seemingly oncoming new cold war if there’s no Earth left. It matters not who or which corporations earn billions if it’s at the expense of the planet. At the end of it all, if Earth remains abused, there will be nothing left.
Billions won’t save you. Industries and economies won’t matter. The victor of the trade war will have no planet to exist upon.
The rest of the world functions under global corporations that control industries and world economies. Often times, they own multiple companies under one name, giving everyone in the world an illusion of choice. But behind all these choices, it’s still a select few controlled by a small percentage of the world’s population — the elite rich.
They hold control over many things. And if many of them remain oblivious or indifferent, policies they create won’t help Earth and all its creatures, but will only be self-serving as they fill up their own coffers for the upkeep of their lavish lives. “Climate crisis, what?”
With the biggest bank accounts, they could positively affect change regarding climate crisis. If only more cared. And instead of competition among corporations, we all unite to combat this crisis.
Will overly capitalistic corporations wake up, or will they lead us to our deaths? Ultimately, it’s their call.
