A well-known international organisation proclaims a rare type of fox with shining white winter-fur as threatened, protected, and listed in the CITES Appendix 1, and a hunter with rotten teeth shoots the fox and sells the fur to have his teeth fixed so he can get married. That’s how it goes. Of course we wish him happiness.  He has the same right to a happy marriage as all of us.

The French movie maker Jean Renoir said in his illustrative The Rules of the Game: “Everyone has their reasons”. That’s it. But something needs to be straightened out.

We need a further inquiry.

The hunter follows what the Market Forces invites him to do.

Can the Market Forces be relied upon to protect Biodiversity?

Can the Market Forces be relied upon to alleviate Forest Loss?

Can the Market Forces be relied upon to alleviate Climate Change?

My answer is NO.
