Aid to understanding green capitalism

Ian Abley, the project manager for Audacity, has produced a useful schematic to help understand the regressive tendency for capitalism to go green. It divides thinkers on the issue into four broad categories depending on their views on population and productivity: misanthropists (in favour of low population and low productivity), anti-machine-survivalists (greens whose main focus is low productivity), techno-hedonists (who are more comfortable with technology but wary of a rising population) and materialists (who favour progress).

The schematic can be viewed here .
