Understanding the World System in CrisisAnnie Leonard
A very important presentation of the materials cycle on Earth and how it all works. Essential viewing for young people.
This is a major MUST SEE presentation.
It explains the basic nature of the primary problem facing us on Earth: we do not pay the true price of what we consume. Who is paying? The Earth, the displaced and exploited workers.
99% of what we mine, process, and consume on Earth is trashed within 6 months. This cannot go on.
There is a better way [the 5th World], and Annie Leonard points us all to it.
