Brown Growth is the opposite of all things sustainable. Using fossil fuel and dirty nuclear reactors to underpin, mass production and exploitation of planet earth, leading to the extinction of species, if not contained. This also includes the development of nuclear and other weapons of war.
UNEP REPORT OCTOBER 2021 - Plastic pollution in our oceans is set to double by 2030, with recycling not enough (we told you so) and global cooperation needed (we told you so again). Don't let the politician spin doctors protract enacting a solution any longer. If shoppers were to boycott plastic wrapped products, apart from the fact they may starve, supermarket suppliers would be forced to switch to paper, glass and metal packaging - or face bankruptcy. The fact politicians allow them to continue as they are tells us that it is the policy makers who are to blame. And, they like it as it is, lots of money for them, backhanders (dividends) or not, taxes as income from plastic products is akin to procurement fraud - for any government involved.
WHAT IS THE BROWN ECONOMY?
The brown economy is a term that describes the traditional economy that is based on fossil fuels, industrialization, and consumption. The brown economy is often associated with environmental degradation, social inequality, and resource depletion. The color brown represents the earth and its natural resources, as well as simple comfort and stability.
ENEMY OF BROWN GROWTH
At the moment the common enemies of brown growth are the renewables, clean energy markets, and green environmentally friendly policies. Brown growth is the enemy of a sustainable and circular economy.
BROWN GROWTH STRATEGY
The Brown Growth strategy has and always will be to use fossil fuels to exploit every nook and cranny on planet earth, taking the world to the brink of extinction.
