Conservation Coup

Published: February 9, 2012, Author: AngelSupport

As documented by Jonathan Latham, the greenwashing of rainforest liquidation is now a fait accompli. Having captured the boards of such notable NGOs as World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International and Nature Conservancy, the international agribusiness corporations are now certified by these mega non-profits as sustainable. Never mind the ethnic cleansing of indigenous peoples, genetically-modified crops, or the application of herbicides and pesticides; for a few million euros, these conservation non-profits will stamp their approval on the deal.

Now that's a conservation coup worth celebrating–in the board rooms on Wall Street.
