Ep 44: Wasted Time on Market Failures

The 3 Lefts returns with an attack on green capitalism and its complete failure as energy efficiency standards lead to more energy use (and thus more emissions and pollution), a non debated car culture destroys our health, the coming collapse of recycling in America, and how charity is just another part of the rotten system we know needs to change. I wrap up with a word on part of the better culture needed.
