Ronald Bailey Wanders Through the People's Summit at the Rio +20 Earth Summit


The hat says "Leave capitalism"

The People's Summit for Social and Environmental Justice is a gigantic left-wing talkfest at the Rio +20 Earth Summit. Located in a park next to the lovely beach at Guanabara Bay, giant tents house five chief plenary discussions and scores more smaller tents shelter a wide variety of earnest discussions about the perfidy of corporations in this age of late capitalism. At the People's Summit, Reason Science Correpondent Ronald Bailey marvels at some of the proposed solutions—ecovillages, inclusion of transpeople, and banning biotech crops—to the world's economic and ecological crises.
