In this article they include the many things that are continuously brought to the populations attention about out earth and how we treat it. But in the passage it includes many unbelievable facts such as roughly 89 million gallons of food is put into waste each year. Sometimes this is the approach you need to catch peoples attention on the effects that we are causing our planet.

Commodifying and Privatising Nature: RIO+20 and the greenwashing of the global economy

The focus on technologies is problematic because of the types of controversial new technologies that are promoted, including biomass incineration, synthetic biology, nanotechnology, etc. Nuclear and GMOs are not explicitly endorsed, but would fit with the approach.

The market-based approach has been heavily criticised by NGOs as it would mean assigning private property rights to nature, commodifying and privatising nature. Leaving nature to the market would undermine the opportunities of communities and states to protect the commons. Also the bitter lessons from the carbon trading debacle seem to be entirely ignored when UNEP proposes tradeable biodiversity credits. The UNEP reports exposes a misguided belief in markets, which is astonishing after the financial crisis. It is as if that example of the chronic failure of deregulation and market-based approaches had never happened.
