“Inequality in the distribution of wealth and power is a key driver of pollution and resource depletion. The wider the inequality, the greater the ability of the rich and powerful to inflict environmental costs on others, especially on low-income communities and racial and ethnic minorities, resulting in more environmental harm as well as systemic environmental injustice.”

This is why I believe the right party to vote for are the greens in Switzerland. They are sometimes called “melon green: green on the outside and red on the inside” – and in the light of the link I just posted, that seems like just the kind of mix we need. (Switzerland also has a green party on the right.)
