The federal government has implemented a plan for privatizing water resources that can then be used by private companies for fish farming, and its objective is to produce 20 million tons of fish annually through aquaculture. Privatizing the water in this way enables companies to intensively produce one type of fish in an area, without the fish having to compete with other species for food and space. Raising fish through aquaculture, however, requires the use of countless chemicals and has led to the displacement of small-scale fishermen and women. http://truth-out.org/news/item/27824-the-partitioning-of-brazil-s-ocean-and-rivers-threatens-small-scale-fishing-families

 Gary Haugen and Victor Boutros's "The Locust Effect: Why the End of Poverty Requires the End of Violence" focuses on the central role of violence in perpetuating poverty, and shows that if any headway is to be made, this issue has to become a top priority for policymakers. Simply put, if people aren't safe, nothing else matters. Shipping grain to the poor, helping them vote, or assisting their efforts to start a farm is irrelevant. Whatever material improvements we provide will simply wash away in the face of the corrupt police forces, out-of-control, armies, private militias, organized criminals, and — not least — failed justice systems that plague poor countries.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY0FRy4JLYo

pdjmoo's insight:

It makes one wonder if the current trend is to weaken local, state governments financial tax-base and regulations, resulting in deterioration of public education, utilities, infrastructure until the only option is to desperately reach out to the corporate sector, using taxpayer money to feed them, selling our souls along with it.

This is a global trend in countries that are in severe financial straits and I would hazard a guess that the banks and investment sectors are circling like sharks to take over the operations of any country, leaving the public at the mercy of their rates as the rewrite laws in their favor.

 Public/Private are like Oil/Water -- they don't mix.  "Private" denotes profit-making and quarterly bottom-lines and can hire and fire at will.  "Public" denotes taxpayer monies that are not tied to the profit motive, and also creates stable jobs.  The "private" aspect will cut corners and even bankrupt themselves if the public monies supporting them or profits begin to dry up. 

Rights also come into the negotiating arena, water/resource rights in particular. and we should not be trading these away out of financial duress.

The public/partnership idea is riddled with dangerous potholes for a long-term fair rate for the general public and leaves us depending upon corporations for our public services and well-being which, we can see from the present financial states, is very tentative.

PICKING UP THE CORPORATE TAB

The Guardian, March 17, 2014
▶ TOXIC TRAIL:  HOW A LANDMARK SUPERFUND CLEANUP PROGRAM LEAVES ITS OWN TOXIC LEGACY.

Below some of the world’s most expensive real estate, in the heart of Silicon Valley, pipes and pumps suck thousands of gallons of contaminated water every hour from vast underground toxic pools.

Giant industrial filters trap droplets of dangerous chemicals at the surface, all in the hope of making the water drinkable again and protecting the workers of tech giants such as Google and Symantec from toxic vapors. Often the original mess is almost untreatable. In Silicon Valley’s case, it would take 700 years of continuous treatment to make the groundwater drinkable. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2014/mar/-sp-toxic-waste-silicon-valley-trail

I don't give a lot of energy to speaking about 'the collapse' of our civilization as I try to connect with people not from fear but from creativity.  Yet I post this study as it came out from NASA and its pretty grounded in regards to the state of the environment.

That’s not even counting the ones threatened by habitat eradication, toxins, and other plagues we have wrought on those with whom we share our home.
Solving these problems will take a global village. Every sector has some role to play, including the private sector, which has until recently been cast primarily as the problem, not part of the solution. http://www.takepart.com/article/2014/05/16/endangered-species-day-everyone-has-role-pla

However for the past 100 years we've made a tremendous impact with our footprint due to the growth of world population and the industrialization of our everyday life.

The emerging holistic “One Health” movement explicitly recognizes the inextricable connections between human, animal, and ecosystem health, and is leading not only to new scientific research but also to projects that help people rise out of poverty, improve their health, reduce conflicts with wildlife, and preserve ecosystems, such as Bwindi’s tropical montane forest. http://news.mongabay.com/2014/0501-nicole-sri-ehp-one-health.html

Imagine, if you will, a paradigm shift to a sustainable global economic system in which all corporations act as responsible global citizens. The unlikely hero at the center of this transformation? It’s the newest evolutionary form of a business firm—the benefit corporation. 

   The prevailing belief that corporations exist solely to maximize profit for shareholders is the single biggest impediment to creating a sustainable economic system. In the current paradigm, it is morally acceptable for corporations to externalize as many of the negative consequences of their behavior on society and the environment as is legally permissible. Corporations have no inherent social and environmental conscience.... http://thehumanist.com/magazine/may-june-2014/features/the-benefit-corporation

"It turns out the purpose of the corporation is to do, and I’m taking this right from what the vast majority of corporate charters say," she says, "they say the purpose of the corporation is to do anything lawful.” Stout says we don't need benefit corporations. "I don’t think we do," she says, "if what you want to do is create legal space for managers to run companies in a socially responsible fashion.".. http://www.marketplace.org/topics/business/cookie-factory-balances-profit-progress

The Swiss film "Bottled Life" documents the booming business with bottled water, by focusing on the global leader in this lucrative multi-billion dollar market – namely, the Nestlé corporation in Switzerland. Nestlé currently controls more than 70% of the world's bottled water brands  http://www.bottledlifefilm.com/index.php/the-story.html

FastCoExist, August 26, 2014
IN BEIJING YOU CAN PAY FOR TRAIN RIDES WITH PLASTIC BOTTLES.
Across the world, there are many ways to encourage recycling. Tax breaks, virtual points, deposit payments--there's no shortage of ideas. Recently, we even came across a machine in Istanbul that gives out dog food in return for a bottle or two. Beijing is now taking its own approach by giving free train rides and mobile phone top-ups to people redeeming used plastic. Machines in 34 locations take bottle deposits and calculate their worth, issuing a credit to the person's mobile account or transit pass. Sensors scan the bottle's weight and composition, then prompt users to choose their option. http://www.fastcoexist.com/3034720/in-beijing-you-can-pay-for-train-rides-with-plastic-bottles

As Capital Homesteading takes hold, Americans would not only become stronger consumers and "customers with money" but also gain stronger property interests in the environment and be better able to afford the greener choice.... http://www.nationofchange.org/achieving-green-economy-1373980790

Social Entrepreneurship: A Fundamental Game Changer

Social Entrepreneurship: A Fundamental Game Changer | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

Published in Partnership with Forbes.com.

Article Highlights:Social Entrepreneurship has changed the way social change takes place.The change has three primary differentiating features: the blurring of the demarcation of profit and non-profit; the emphasis on impact and efficacy; and the sense of urgency and need to scale.

Whether there is a profit motive or not, the notion that business has a role to play in addressing societal issues is at the heart of today’s discourse on social entrepreneurship.   Defining what social entrepreneurship is as well as the difference between it and traditional non-profit management as well as philanthropy is a flourishing discourse.,,,  http://skollworldforum.org/2013/01/07/social-entrepreneurship-a-fundamental-game-changer/

A new project by CSR Europe http://www.csreurope.org/ a membership-funded organization of European companies sharing best practices in corporate social responsibility: “We decided to launch the European Social Intrapreneurship Programme (ESIP) in order to learn more in terms of what the companies are doing to foster social innovation inside their own organizations,” said project manager Alice Pedretti. “It’s still not very well-known and mainstream the concept of promoting the innovation coming from your own employees: employee-driven innovation.”

The easiest option in business is to take the path of least resistance, which in our current culture is to maximise profits and remain blinkered to the consequences of our actions. It therefore takes determination and self-awareness to be able to create an enterprise that integrates doing good with doing well, or – on a deeper level – merging heart and mind. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/young-social-entrepreneurs-changing-the-world

CHIPOLTE'S FAST FOOD INTEGRITY

Sadhbh Walshe interviews founder of the Chipotle Mexican Grill, Steve Ells, about his mission to provide fast food with integrity.

Is it possible to be a profitable restaurant chain and still live up to your goal of serving "food with integrity" to an ever expanding customer base? Those who decry the dismal state of modern farming practices will say it's not.

Why Choosing Nature Will Only Advance Human Societies

Why Choosing Nature Will Only Advance Human Societies | Corporate "Social" Responsibility – #CSR #Sustainability #SocioEconomic #Community #Brands #Environment | Scoop.it

 

 April 5, 2013 - LIFEWISE

WHY CHOOSING NATURE WILL ONLY ADVANCE SOCIETIES

We all have our opinions, principles and philosophies about life and we must be very careful about infringing on those of others. Every person should be able to follow that inner voice without external influences constantly telling them they’re wrong. However there is one choice we could all make right now that would transform our world to benefit all living things and the Earth itself.

That is, choosing nature and each other above all else. So many of us have been deschooled on this concept that it may take decades for the scales to tip so that we all start respecting our world again.

By embracing Mother Nature, we adopt the foundation of all she has to offer. We understand that she is never mistaken and will always do the right thing for Earth’s inhabitants....if we care for Her as we expect Her to care for us http://southweb.org/lifewise/why-choosing-nature-will-only-advance-human-societies/

Marxist philosopher Slavoj Žižek discusses the ‘naturalization’ of capitalism and how ecology became a new field of capitalist investment.

According to Žižek ecological apartheid will divide our urban society. Capitalism is not in control of nature and due to techno-scientific interventions the essence of the ecological order will be lost. http://www.nextnature.net/2009/02/ecology-a-new-opium-for-the-masses/

pdjmoo's curator insight, April 5, 2013 11:38 PM

It does not take a Ph.D for commonsense to tell us that without Nature We Do Not Exist.   If we were to foster, nurture and respect our natural world providing Her with Her needs, instead of focusing on ravishing Her for our wants, desires and profits - we would have a much more balanced world emotionally, psychologically and spiritually.   To the degree the natural world is out of balance and "sick" so are we.   To the degree we humans degrade and abuse Her, we degrade and abuse our own human race and all other species within the great web of life.

Let us return to simplicity of reconnecting to the source of our sustenance every moment of every day and let Nature teach us the path back to commonsense and sensibility

.....The thinking is that if we could just get people to produce and consume more stuff, then we could also pay off the debt, create jobs, eradicate poverty, and maybe even have some money left over to clean up the environment.

It's tempting to believe this economic fairy tale.  But if growth is the cure to all of our ills, why are we in such a bind after sixty years of it?  Even though the U.S. economy has more than tripled in size since 1950, surveys indicate that people have not become any happier.  Inequality has risen sharply in recent years, and jobs are far from secure.  At the same time, increased economic activity has led to greater resource use, dangerous levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and declining biodiversity.  There is now strong evidence that economic growth has become uneconomic in the sense that it costs more than it's worth.

Maybe it's time to consider a new strategy—an economy of enough http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/02/25-1

IS THE IDEA OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT BASED ON A FALSE CONSENSUS. The term sustainable development rapidly gained wide-scale acceptance, with the U.N. Commission on Sustainable Development just one of the many (inter)governmental or top-down bodies that have set up in the past three decades to include environmental goals in planning and policy.. The idea of sustainable development is based on a false consensus. Once this term and its underlying situations are properly deconstructed, Demaria tells IPS, “we discover that sustainable development is still all about development. And that is where the problem lies.”

Our politicians are hung up on keeping the growth curve rising. But does GDP really tell us all we need to know about a country's wealth and well-being? In this new RSA Short, Kate Raworth makes a powerful argument to look beyond economic growth alone for a true measure of prosperity and progress.
    Kate Raworth is a renegade economist teaching at Oxford University, and is focused on the rewriting of economics to make it a fit tool for addressing the 21st century's social and ecological challenges. She blogs on Doughnut Economics at http://www.kateraworth.com and tweets @KateRaworth

-▶  DO WE NEED RELENTLESS, ENDLESS ECONOMIC GROWTH?
Critics question desirability of relentless economic growth. Ecologists warn that economic growth is strangling the natural systems on which life depends, creating not just wealth, but filth on a planetary scale. Carbon pollution is changing the climate. Water shortages, deforestation, tens of millions of acres of land too polluted to plant, and other global environmental ills are increasingly viewed as strategic risks by governments and corporations around the world.
   "The physical pressure that human activities put on the environment can't possibly be sustained," said Stanford University ecologist Gretchen Daily, who is at the forefront of efforts across the world to incorporate "natural capital," the value of such things as water, topsoil and genetic diversity that nature provides, into economic decision-making. ... http://www.sfgate.com/default/article/Critics-question-desirability-of-relentless-5114217.php

  -▶ RETHINKING OUR 'RIGHTS' TO DANGEROUS BEHAVIOURS. In the last few years, it’s become increasingly clear that food companies engineer hyper-processed foods in ways precisely geared to most appeal to our tastes. This technologically advanced engineering is done, of course, with the goal of maximizing profits, regardless of the effects of the resulting foods on consumer health, natural resources, the environment or anything else.
   But the issues go way beyond food, as the City University of New York professor Nicholas Freudenberg discusses in his new book, “Lethal but Legal: Corporations, Consumption, and Protecting Public Health.” Freudenberg’s case is that the food industry is but one example of the threat to public health posed by what he calls “the corporate consumption complex,” an alliance of corporations, banks, marketers and others that essentially promote and benefit from unhealthy lifestyles. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/26/opinion/bittman-rethinking-our-rights-to-dangerous-behaviors.html?smid=fb-share&_r=0

AGRITOPIA: FARM-TO-TABLE TAKES ROOT. The neighborhood is called Agritopia, and it’s one of a growing number of so-called agrihoods, residential developments where a working farm is the central feature, in the same way that other communities may cluster around a golf course, pool or fitness center. The real estate bust in 2008 halted new construction, but with the recovery, developers are again breaking ground on farm-focused tracts. At least a dozen projects across the country are thriving, enlisting thousands of home buyers who crave access to open space, verdant fields and fresh food... http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/12/dining/farm-to-table-living-takes-root.html?_r=0

 ▶  TURNING THE GLOBAL ECONOMY INTO LOCAL CONNECTED COMMUNITIES.  "We no longer know where our food comes from when it ends up on our plate or where the waste goes when we finish a meal," observes Michelle Long, founder and chief executive of Balle .. Repairing the broken relationships wrought by the combination of economic globalization and corporate giantism is essential. And not only for our economy, which she argues will become more resilient and more productive as it becomes more local (ie boasting shorter supply chains, greater local ownership, closer proximity to the environment, higher socially inclusivity and so forth). But the more connected as individuals we are, she maintains, the happier and more fulfilled we'll be as human beings. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/global-economy-connected-communities-local

CHRIS MARTENSON: But if -- if the choice was, listen, we were going to print up $2.4 trillion, and we were either going give it to the banks or we were going to do something else with it, I think this would be something else.

We will muddle through, but one thing we're not going to muddle through with is an exponential economy that needs more, more, more all the time.

PAUL SOLMAN: Suppose you are wrong about the debt. What evidence would you then offer to suggest that we're not on the right track?

CHRIS MARTENSON: If I had to give just a one-word summary, it's unsustainable.

In my own life, I have cut my standard of living in half. I have doubled my quality of life. I'm not saying everybody should do that or I'm admirable because of it. But I have learned that we can do things far more he efficiently and effectively and have better outcomes. And why wouldn't we do that?

PAUL SOLMAN: In the end, Chris Martenson may be just another economic doomsayer with an enthusiastic online following.

But his popularity and his voicing of the disaffections of Americans right and left alike suggest he may instead be a wishful throwback to the American tradition of simple self-reliance in the face of an ever more complex, impersonal global economy, an economy that could turn out to be unsustainable.

                                 PBS Newshour, January 06, 2015

The United States is in the midst of a severe epidemic of prescription opioid addiction and overdose deaths.  According to the CDC, this is the worst drug epidemic in United States’ history...there are more Americans dying from painkiller overdoses who are getting these medications from doctors than young people who we now see switching to heroin.

    "WE CAN PREVENT A 'CLIMATE CRASH' WITH A CARBON TAX

      OpEd by Henry M. Paulson Jr., Fmr. US Treasury Secretary

 

  "THERE is a time for weighing evidence and a time for acting. And if there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout my work in finance, government and conservation, it is to act before problems become too big to manage.

For too many years, we failed to rein in the excesses building up in the nation’s financial markets.

          When the credit bubble burst in 2008, the damage was devastating. Millions suffered. Many still do.

We’re making the same mistake today with climate change. We’re staring down a climate bubble that poses enormous risks to both our environment and economy. The warning signs are clear and growing more urgent as the risks go unchecked.

         "We are building up excesses (debt in 2008, greenhouse gas emissions that are trapping heat now). Our government policies are flawed (incentivizing us to borrow too much to finance homes then, and encouraging the overuse of carbon-based fuels now). Our experts (financial experts then, climate scientists now) try to understand what they see and to model possible futures. And the outsize risks have the potential to be tremendously damaging (to a globalized economy then, and the global climate now)" http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/22/opinion/sunday/lessons-for-climate-change-in-the-2008-recession.html?_r=0

It’s suicidal, both economically and literally, to focus on the fossil fuel industry’s limited, short-term economic benefits at the expense of long-term prosperity, human health and the natural systems, plants and animals that make our well-being and survival possible. Those who refuse to take climate change seriously are subjecting us to enormous economic risks and foregoing the numerous benefits that solutions would bring...http://ecowatch.com/2014/07/08/economics-of-global-warming/

Lucy Siegle: Multinational companies do have the power to make things better and perhaps they are beginning to show it

 

Guardian Sustainable Business, June 21, 2014

▶   WHY DOES BIG BUSINESS WANT TO SAVE THE WORLD? Can we trust the Earth's future to capitalists?

     Multinational companies do have the power to make things better and perhaps they are beginning to show it. Consumers, stand by to feel increasingly uplifted and guilt-free! The foremost means of "empowering global consumers",

     The Global Consumer Goods Forum, Boring old corporate social responsibility has turned into a muscular version of values-led capitalism, filling a political vacuum. "If hundreds of the world's most powerful companies can agree to get behind an ambitious call for any type of political action, world leaders should pay attention," said Winnie Byanyima, executive director of Oxfam International.

     A shift from unsustainable sourcing in a commodity, such as palm oil, to sustainable should mean a shift in fortunes for the biosphere. Without such a shift, the consequences are unthinkable.

   -▶  THE OPEN SOURCE REVOLUTION IS COMING AND IT WILL CONQUER THE 1% - EX CIA SPY. 

Today's capitalism, he argues, is inherently predatory and destructive: "Over the course of the last centuries, the commons was fenced, and everything from agriculture to water was commoditised without regard to the true cost in non-renewable resources. Human beings, who had spent centuries evolving away from slavery, were re-commoditised by the Industrial Era."

Open source everything, in this context, offers us the chance to build on what we've learned through industrialisation, to learn from our mistakes, and catalyse the re-opening of the commons, in the process breaking the grip of defunct power structures and enabling the possibility of prosperity for all.

"Sharing, not secrecy, is the means by which we realise such a lofty destiny as well as create infinite wealth.

A HAIR-RAISING VIDEO EXPOSE: "Stealing Africa" Poverty, Profit & Multi-Nationals

                     A  Perturbing multinational #tax expose: 

                                      STEALING AFRICA:

        WHY POVERTY? HOW MUCH PROFIT IS ENOUGH? (58:27)

Based on original research into public documents, the film describes the tax system employed by multinational companies in Africa and the global system.

Rüschlikon is a village in Switzerland with a very low tax rate and very wealthy residents. But it receives more tax revenue than it can use. This is largely thanks to one resident - Ivan Glasenberg, CEO of Glencore, whose copper mines in Zambia are not generating a large bounty tax revenue for the Zambians. Zambia has the 3rd largest copper reserves in the world, but 60% of the population live on less than $1 a day and 80% are unemployed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNYemuiAOfU

          Why We Can't End Poverty Until We Change the Justice System

                                 

Gary Haugen and Victor Boutros's "The Locust Effect: Why the End of Poverty Requires the End of Violence" focuses on the central role of violence in perpetuating poverty, and shows that if any headway is to be made, this issue has to become a top priority for policymakers. Simply put, if people aren't safe, nothing else matters. Shipping grain to the poor, helping them vote, or assisting their efforts to start a farm is irrelevant. Whatever material improvements we provide will simply wash away in the face of the corrupt police forces, out-of-control, armies, private militias, organized criminals, and — not least — failed justice systems that plague countries, especially poor countries. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JY0FRy4JLYo
