The articles deal with the environmental rights in the present world, proposing a general framework and connecting the environmental problems to capitalism and economic growth. The article focuses on two cases: that of Mariana (Minas Gerais, Brazil), where the disruption of the Fundão mining tailings dam in 2015 provoked 17 people deaths, and that of Taranto (Italy), where the factory Ilva has caused a serious environmental damage, which jeopardize the health of the local people. The article aims at providing a further demonstration that, where the logic of capital prevails, the concern with the human being and the nature are canceled.
