POLL: DO YOU SUPPORT A TOTAL BAN ON EXTRACTIVE INDUSTRIES IN TROPICAL FORESTS? Answer below.
It could seem as if the colonos blog has lost focus lately, pop-culture youtube videos and irrelevant nonsense from the celebrity-industrial complex – or is it irrelevant? What makes the world go round and where do we go from here? If all of the world belong to everyone and everyone belongs to the planet, then just as much as the people who live in the cities benefit from the rain forests’ life giving powers and diversity potentials, so do the people of the forest live in a global village that is run through the magic of light in the form of advertising streams, consumer agency (and not), – we are all subjected to the celebrity-industrial complex that underpins a global control of the social imaginary.
All in the same boat. There isn’t really much else to say than: we need a complete and indefinite ban on extractive industries in the tropical forests and in other sensitive areas – and only, and only if, extraction can actually be performed sustainably, which is a highly complex and unanswerable question perhaps, only then should resources be excavated from the earth anywhere. Time is running out.
