This thread is about addressing climate change.  Did the natives build the economies (including dams and coal trains) that invented the technologies that produced the medicine that saved or improved billions of lives?  This may be harsh but it's easy for a group to be holier than thou on the environment when their economic & technological activity amounts to very little.
What we've built isn't sustainable. We need a better model for our economy.
How about all of the "indigenous" Africans and east/south asians who flood their rivers with **** and **** and mountains of garbage?
How about our trillions of litres of toxic waste 'ponds'?
Again, the racism. Are you aware of that?
My point is North American aboriginals aren't a model for sustainability because their economics aren't compatible or desirable for most of us.  We need to invent a new model of sustainability that is compatible with modern industrialization and economic growth, unless we want to live in the stone age again.
We need a different economy. If it isn't sustainable, it ain't worth ****.
It's a false, obsolete economy.
We need to get more intelligent.than destroying the earth and the systems that sustain us.
Chewing off our own arms.
Pretty dumb.
Indigenous people have been trying to tell us that for a long time.
They know we're doomed on our current path.
Do you not know that?
