“The “green economy” agenda… could well become the blueprint for the biggest resource grab in history, with corporations appropriating the planet’s green wealth and biodiversity.” – Green Greed by Vandana Shiva
“Big oil, big pharma, big food, big seed companies are joining hands to appropriate biodiversity and biomass — the living carbon, thereby extending the age of fossil fuels and dead carbon…. The instruments for this new dispossession are technological tools of genetic engineering, synthetic biology and intellectual property rights (IPRs).” – Seeds of Injustice Vandana Shiva
