We need to look at more fundamental questions of economics.

I haven't read much of your plan yet, but from the little I've read of it, and from your email, it appears to me that you do not mention ending capitalism. Apparently you believe we can fix our environmental problems while continuing to live under a government that is privately owned and that works only for increasing the profits of its owners. I disagree. Ecocide is an ever present externalized cost in any market economy. You may think you are more revolutionary than Bill McKibben, but I think you are still not nearly revolutionary enough. I need to put that in a more constructive form, so here it is: Think about whether ecocide is inherent in the fundamental principles of our economic system.
