For life on Earth, capitalism is like a collision with a massive meteorite: mammalian species are disappearing 100-1000x faster than natural rate. Half of the world’s flora and fauna on track for extinction this century.

From the perspective of earthly life, capitalism differs little from colliding with a massive meteorite. E.O. Wilson, an influential naturalist, predicts that half of the world’s flora and fauna will be extinguished by the century’s end. Recent studies have estimated that mammalian species are disappearing one hundred to one thousand times faster than the natural rate.
