Unlike Russel Norman and the Green Party who are calling for a 'green capitalism', the Global Climate Convergence recognises that the present economic system is only leading to the Earth's environmental destruction.
Unlike our own Green Party and its disastrous promotion of 'market environmentalism', the Convergence recognises that global capitalism has failed the planet and that merely tinkering with the machinery of our present economic system will not save us. It is too late for that:
....the movement for democracy and justice is sweeping the globe – from democracy revolutions to occupy protests, movements for the rights of workers, students, immigrants, women and Indigenous peoples; resistance to NSA spying, endless war, prison pipelines, tar sands, fracking, nuclear power, GMOs and more. The accelerating climate disaster – now predicted to dismantle civilization as we know it as soon as 2050 - intensifies all these struggles, and provides new urgency for collaboration and unified action. Clearly there is no time to lose.
The United-States based campaign is backed by a wide range of political and community groups including the US Green Party, Occupy Wall Street and System Change not Climate Change.
