Who’s Up For A More Radical Climate (scam) Movement Or Something

Anyone who thinks Leftist movements can’t get even more radical hasn’t been watching. We thought they couldn’t get more crazy and more extreme during the first term of Bush43. The second term was even crazier. And they ramped that up even more during the Obama admin. And even more during the Trump admin. There is no “turning the amp to 11”, because they keep adding numbers to the amplifier. They always find a way to go more moonbat

The case for a more radical climate movement
Author Andreas Malm on the failures of climate activism and the need for escalation.

Has the climate movement failed?

It’s hard to look at the world at this moment and not conclude that the answer is yes. Despite all the activism, despite all the protests, despite all the warnings, the world is still in many ways hostage to the fossil fuel industry.

Here’s a solution: all you climate cultists can stop driving fossil fueled vehicles. Stop taking fossil fueled travel. Practice what you preach. If most members refuse to do anything in their own lives, that’s pretty much saying “we don’t really believe what we’re saying.”

A new book by Andreas Malm, a professor of human ecology at Sweden’s Lund University, asks a simple but perplexing question: Given the stakes, why hasn’t the global climate movement become far more radical than it is?

It’s a fair question. If we as a species were serious, if we really believed what we already know about climate change, we would be doing everything humanly possible to shift course. And yet we’re not. Even the most ambitious policy proposals on the table, with little chance of passing, are scarcely sufficient. This is the starting point of Malm’s book, and if you follow his logic it leads to some conclusions you may find uncomfortable.

He says it bluntly: We should “[d]amage and destroy new CO2-emitting devices. Put them out of commission, pick them apart, demolish them, burn them, blow them up. Let the capitalists who keep investing in the fire know that their properties will be trashed.” For Malm, we have a choice: Destroy the property that’s destroying the planet, or sacrifice the Earth on the altar of that property.

Malm’s book — it’s titled How to Blow Up a Pipeline — is obviously meant to provoke. But embedded in the provocation is a morally serious challenge to how we think about, and act on, the crisis humanity faces. And to be perfectly honest, I’m not sure how I feel about it. For instance, I think his summons to violence vastly overstates our ability to “control” such violence once it’s unleashed. I’m also less confident in the strategic utility of violence (even if it’s limited to the destruction of property, as Malm recommends) considering the enormous blowback that might result from it.

The thing is, Vox writer Sean Illing may have reservations, but, the violence has already started. Pipelines have already been attacked. And lunatics are doing things like throwing fake blood at buildings, gluing themselves to trucks and other transportation methods, dumping manure in the streets, completely shutting down transportation routes and streets. Look at Extinction Rebellion: do they look sane and reasonable? Do they look like they could snap into violence in a heartbeat?

Of course, this might drive people away from the climate cult. People in the U.K. are pretty unhappy with them right now as they disrupt the streets during rush hour and the delivery of petrol. This could backfire hugely. They’ve spent 30+ years spreading awareness, and more and more people are recognizing they’re all climahypocrites, and that this is all about creating a Fascist, controlling, domineering government.
