Pirates about Sustainability
Sustainability as priority
- Ecology and ethics should take precedence over economic efficiency and profit maximization.
- Our environment is the most important common. But the health and survival of man and animals are threatened and our planet will be destroyed. Environmental interests and consequences are systematically minimized and ignored in taking economic and political decisions. Pirates advocate a holistic vision that respects the ecological balance and the capacity of the earth.
- Economic growth culture is incompatible with the scarcity and finiteness of natural resources. The Pirates believe that we should bet plenty on renewable and clean energy. The production capacity of the earth must be respected. The current overproduction and overconsumption must urgently be curtailed . We have no right to leave our planet behind plundered for the future generations, nor to build here our wealth on exploitation and slavery elsewhere in the world.
- According to the Pirates technology and scientific progress offer new opportunities for sustainable living. These should be fully explored and utilized, at the expense of old habits, power structures and lobbying groups.
