The article explains the reasons for the conversión to the speech of sustainability, on the part of large producers of petroleum and of large farms entrepreneurs of monoculture, who hegemonize the farming business. For that, the way in which this hegemonic sector -organized as a technical-cientific-industrial-financial-military-mediatic power, in which the owners of agrobusiness also participate, the oíd hegemonic power now modernized- has historically been reconstituted, is here analyzed. The conclusión is that a trae tragedy is ahead, with the generalized expropriation that will occur by the expansión of modern-colonial large estáte owner of the farming businessmen monoculture, who want to submit agricultural production to the biomass fuels production. The enormous importance of understanding the world scope of capitalism and the role of productive forces that the capital imposes, and the need to exercise the right to a different orientation anchored in the defense of territory, is hereby stated.
