Save life on earth, or save industrial civilization?

4 stars

Has the environmental movement shifted its goals from saving the earth's biodiversity, creatures, healthy ecosystems etc to arguing instead for the much-less-contentious saving of human industrial civilization with "green technology" promises of convenience, continued extraction, and ecological depletion? The book is a bit heavy on bashing the myths contained in how solar, hydro, recycling, cities, etc are not solutions to the root causes of extractive industrial consumptive convenience, but fair enough. Save life on earth, or save industrial civilization? It's a bit of a false bind, but it's also important to see when options marketed as "environmentally friendly" are mostly friendly to our continued inaction.
