Warmist Wants A Revolution To Kill Off Capitalism

This is exactly why I attack “climate change”, ie, the notion that every change in the weather is caused by Mankind’s release of CO2, primarily from fossil fueled vehicles, from a political position, with a smattering of science and data: because the issue is primarily political, pushed by hardcore leftists to enact a hardcore leftist political system

Not even climate change will kill off capitalism

As long as the conditions for investment and profit remain, the system will adapt. Which is why we need a revolution

Arguably the single most important mistake the revolutionary movements of the 60s and 70s made was to overlook the resilience of capitalism. The idea – catastrophism, as it is often called – that the system was going to crumble under the pressure of its own contradictions, that the bourgeoisie produces its own “gravediggers” (as Marx and Engels put it in the Communist Manifesto) has been disproved. When the rate of profit started showing signs of decline in the first half of the 70s, the redistributive policies implemented after the second world war were terminated and the neoliberal revolution was launched.

Interestingly, many of those fighting the system were pushing for less government. They said to not trust the government, to not trust anyone over 30. To get government out of our lives. Freedom. Love. (along with other notions). Today’s fools are pushing for more and more Big Government, with more intrusion into our personal lives, and more government control over Other People’s lives. These Progressive wankers always think that the rules will never affect themselves.

Anyhow, after bashing capitalism and extolling Marxism/Progressivism for the rest of the article, we end with

Nothing in the system’s logic will make it go away. A world of environmental desolation and conflict will work for capitalism, as long as the conditions for investment and profit are guaranteed. And, for this, good old finance and the military are ready to serve. Building a revolutionary movement that will put a stop to this insane logic is therefore not optional. Because, if the system can survive, it doesn’t mean that lives worth living will.

At least Razmig Keucheyan has the honesty to tell us what the true goal of the climate change movement is. And, from the comments

As to environmental ruin, I urge you to look at such paradises of Marxist environmental love as East Germany and Ukraine.

And Russia and it’s previous satellite nations. How’s China doing? And then there’s North Korea, which has significant environmental degradation, to go with their dearth of power, food, and modern living conditions.

    No one is claiming that every change in the weather is caused by CO2 release.

    Most CO2 emissions come from electricity generation and heating buildings. In 2011, 26% of total CO2 emissions in the US came from the transportation sector.

    The “smattering of science and data” amounts to overwhelming evidence that added CO2 from fossil fuels is causing the Earth to warm.

    There may be “hardcore leftists” pushing a “hardcore leftist political system”, so would you be so kind to identify some more of them in positions of power? The author of this misinterpreted piece is saying that not even global catastrophe will “kill of (sic) capitalism”.

    Climate realists are trying to slow global warming to save our current way of life, including capitalism.

    But you do claim that CO2 release increases the rate of climate change. So while you are trying to split hairs that don’t exist, the fact of the matter is that you believe that climate change is altered by CO2 release.

    There may be “hardcore leftists” pushing a “hardcore leftist political system”, so would you be so kind to identify some more of them in positions of power?

    You wanna start with Obama and go from there?

    There are times when you say things that illustrate that you are living in a world that is apart from reality.

    I agree. That is why we fight against people like you who hate science and are willing to lie, cheat and steal to promote an idea that you champion not on the merits, but because of what you “believe.”

    g2,

    Thanks for admitting the Pirate’s opening line was false. Also, weather is not climate. Also, no one knowledgeable thinks that most of the increase in CO2 comes from cars. If you lie about the little things why should we believe you on anything else?

    “That is why we fight against people like you who hate science and are willing to lie, cheat and steal to promote an idea that you champion not on the merits, but because of what you “believe.””

    The Earth is warming, most likely because of increased atmospheric CO2 from the burning of fossil fuels.

    Would you point out each lie of mine?

  4. Jl says:

    No, J, the earth has stopped warming. Most likely because Co2 has nothing to do with it.

  5. Jeffery says:

    jl,

    First, dave denies that hydrogen ions exist, now you deny that CO2 absorbs infrared radiation! You’ve earned your sobriquet and you wear like a badge of ignorance. What next? Gravity is a hoax?

    Sorry Jeffery, but Teach’s first line was spot on. Every change in the weather is blamed on climate change. Once again you are demonstrating a lack of comprehension skills.

    Also, weather is not climate.

    Yet people of your ilk continue to make the claim that any change in the weather is based on climate change.

    If you lie about the little things why should we believe you on anything else?

    Exactly. So why should anyone believe you?

    Would you point out each lie of mine?

    Sorry. Messages like this are restricted in length. However, this is not the first time that you have been called out on stretching the truth or lying. Heck, in this very thread you lied about what Teach said and lied that I said he was being dishonest.

    Why is it that liberals feel the need to lie all the time?
