Why single out capitalism as destructive to the world?

It's not as though communism has been kind to the environment. Take a look at the former USSR and China. Green communism is a Western latte sipping yuppy fantasy.

Why single out Capitalism for anything? Like two world wars and a third one on the way.
It all has to do with this thing called "Unsustainable Development Patterns."
Perhaps the worst case of Unsustainable Capitalism is our very 'own' Capitalist Islamic State of Iran, in which the Islamic State has single handedly, destroyed our natural, environmental resources.
In only 38 years Mullahs have successfully destroyed a natural environment that has been around for thousands of years. That's a painful example of Unsustainable Development Pattern.
BTW, Other than Stalinist shitheads and Fatmeh Komandos no one really thinks USSR or PCR are true Socialist states.
