Capitalism and the Environment---Friends or Foes? See this cartoon and decide for yourself...

Creative Destruction is a feature, not a bug, of Capitalism.  I look this simple cartoon and see Capitalism as a tool for improving the physical environment and conserving resources. 
Think of all the natural resouces that are/were used to produce the techologies on the left-side "In the Old Days" that are not used on the right-side "Now".  Is the net effect positive for the environment?  What do you think?
