The only solution to climate change is world socialism

Public Policy

Millions of students, youth and their supporters in more than 150 countries will take part this Friday in a worldwide Global Climate Strike demanding immediate and far-reaching actions to abate and reverse climate change. The internationally coordinated protests are being organized in response to the growing realization among young people that the governments of the world are incapable of taking any significant measures to halt global warming.

Climate change has already had a devastating impact on large sections of the world’s population. Extreme weather events such as Hurricane Dorian cause billions of dollars in destruction and cost dozens and possibly thousands of lives. Recent reports warn that 821 million human beings are at risk of starvation as global warming makes agriculture increasingly untenable and that 3.2 billion men, women and children reside in areas that will become unlivable possibly in the next decade.

As such, global warming cannot be viewed through a lens that treats all of humanity equally. As the increasingly powerful hurricanes, typhoons and wildfires the world over show, it is the poorest 90 percent, the working class, that suffers the most from the ecological crisis, exacerbating the social misery of hundreds of millions already facing poverty, starvation and war. There are already at least 210 million so-called “climate refugees”—those forced to permanently flee their homes as a result of climate change-related disasters. The United Nations estimates that up to one billion will be displaced by 2050.

Such disasters are precursors to more catastrophic events. If global warming remains unabated, millions of plant and animal species will go extinct as they are unable to adapt to the rapidly changing climate. The Great Barrier Reef will be killed off by coral bleaching—stress induced on coral by warmer ocean temperatures and higher oceanic acidity—destroying a key part of Earth’s food chain and general ecological stability. The Amazon rainforest will burn down, turning to ash one of the cradles of Earth’s land-based biodiversity. Glaciers in Antarctica and Greenland will slide into the ocean, raising sea levels and potentially drowning the planet’s coastal cities, home to between one-third and one-half of the world’s population.

Any serious effort to reverse climate change would involve a scientifically planned global restructuring of the world’s energy industry to transition from a reliance on fossil fuels to renewable energy. This in turn would involve a transformation on the same scale of transportation, logistics, agriculture and ultimately society as a whole. Such changes would necessarily cut across national boundaries, corporate profits and national security interests. These institutions are bound up with capitalism: the division of the world into rival nation-states and the subordination of economic life to the accumulation of private profit.

The only form of economic life that is capable of placing the world’s productive forces on such an internationally coordinated scale is the opposite of capitalism: socialism, that is the democratic control of the world’s productive forces by the international working class.

Efforts to address climate change cannot be separated from this question. Anything less involves appeals to the United Nations or the various “left parties” around the world, which have proven themselves incapable and unwilling to put forward any meaningful solution to climate change. Even as the sentiments of millions demand solutions to the ecological crisis, leaders of every country rush to ensure that any climate agreement, including the 2015 Paris Accord, does not place genuine limits on greenhouse gas emissions and instead provides new protections for “their” energy corporations.

These resolutions are also increasingly used by the major imperialist powers as elements with which to bludgeon their geopolitical rivals. During the presidency of Barack Obama, the fact that China is the world’s largest polluter was used in an attempt to gain leverage in trade negotiations. Current 2020 Democratic presidential primary candidates Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have both pledged likely more aggressive measures if they are elected.

Worse are the attempts to make corporations more “green”, even as their executives promote that “over consumption” by the “surplus population” is the real cause of climate change, in an attempt to blame the crisis on ordinary people. The corporate heads, in fact, oversee the businesses which caused global warming in the first place. The 2017 Carbon Majors Report showed that 70 percent of all greenhouse gases released from 1988 to 2015 came from just 100 major companies.

It is therefore critical to turn the students and youth participating in climate strikes away from parliamentary politics and to the working class. It is the working class that will suffer the brunt of the impact of global warming. It is the working class that is objectively and increasingly defining itself as an international class. It is the working class whose social interests lie in the overthrow of capitalism, the abolition of private ownership of the means of production, and the establishment of an economic system based on the satisfaction of human need, including a safe and healthy environment.

The objective basis for this movement is expressed most sharply by the ongoing strike of autoworkers at General Motors, in conflict with the United Auto Workers, which is costing the company $100 million a day and has already sent shock waves throughout the auto industry. This comes after a strike wave of autoworkers in Mexico earlier this year and mass movements such as the “Yellow Vests” in France, mass protests in Hong Kong and demonstrations in Puerto Rico that forced out the sitting governor.

The technology exists to solve the great social problems of our time: climate change, the destruction of jobs, mounting social inequality, the assault on democratic rights and the threat of world war. At the same time, scientific planning can ensure increased living standards and quality of life for the world’s population. The only social force that can achieve this goal is the international working class, through the method of world socialist revolution. The International Youth and Students for Social Equality urges all young people to fight for this perspective.

    I’m sure Trump and Mnuchin don’t fully realize ramifications of this latest Iranian ‘sanction’.

    If/as raids on US currency step up over the next few weeks, watch this chart;
    http://www.livecharts.co.uk/ForexCharts/dollarindex.php

    IMO, once China and Russia get the EU buying
    oil denominated in yuan and euros they will be able to go round Trump’s War on Trade Tariffs avoiding world depression.

    China opens new markets for its cheap goods in Europe, South America, Africa, & of course, Russia.

    US importers are already leaving China for other
    low cost markets. (Vietnam, S. Korea, etc.)

    Shell, Exxon Close Deal To Build Five LNG Import Terminals
    By Irina Slav – Sep 20, 2019, 1:00 PM CDT

    Shell and Exxon are among the companies picked by the Pakistani government to build five LNG import terminals as part of efforts to boost natural gas imports to deal with shortages in supply.

    Reuters reports that the terminals could be operational in two to three years, quoting the country’s oil and power minister, Omar Ayub Khan.

    With a fast-rising population, Pakistan has been plagued with power outages largely resulting from a shortage of fuel necessary to keep its power stations going. Though there is some local production, in financial year 2017/18, demand exceeded this supply by about 3 billion cu ft daily. Imports of gas and LNG are already on the rise but not fast enough to ensure no more blackouts.

    To remedy matters, the government has picked five consortia to build additional terminals. The consortia include, besides the two supermajors, also Mitsubishi Corp, Energas, Trafigura, and Gunvor.

    The consortia must submit their detailed plans for the terminals for government approval by November 5 although Reuters quoted PM Khan as saying this approval had already been granted.

    Pakistan currently has LNG import capacity of 1.2 billion cu ft per day in two terminals, with plans to add another with a capacity of 600 billion cu ft daily in 2020. One billion cu ft of natural gas equals about 21,000 tons of LNG.

    Besides imports, however, Pakistan is also pursuing higher local production. The country is eager to open up its gas deposits to foreign energy companies, and earlier this year a senior government official told Reuters, “I expect in the second half of this year we will be auctioning at least 10, if not 20 blocks for exploration.”

    The resources seem to be there, according to estimates. Pakistan has conventional gas reserves of 20 trillion cu ft and shale gas reserves exceed 100 trillion cu ft. So far, the authorities have delineated more than 30 gas blocks, all onshore.

    News:

    Chinese negotiators cut short trade meetings with the US on Friday and canceled plans to visit American farmers next week.
    The report came as Trump administration officials met with their Chinese counterparts in Washington on Friday to lay the framework for future negotiations.
    The planned visits to US farmlands had been seen as a gesture of goodwill to the Trump administration.
    Visit the Markets Insider homepage for more stories.
    China officials on Friday canceled plans to visit American farmers next week and were expected to cut a trip to the US short.
    Officials said they had to return to China earlier than planned and would no longer visit agricultural producers in the Midwest next week, according to Rebecca Colnar, a spokesperson at the Montana Farm Bureau Federation. CNBC first reported the cancellation.
    “We were contacted by a delegation of Chinese agriculture officials yesterday morning who said they were visiting Montana next week,” said Colnar. “This morning, we received word that they would no longer be visiting Montana but would instead, be returning to China sooner than originally planned.”

    The report came as Trump administration officials met with their Chinese counterparts in Washington on Friday to lay the framework for future negotiations. Deputy-level talks were still ongoing as of 3:15 p.m. ET, the Office of the US Trade Representative said in an email.
    The planned visits to US farmlands had been seen as a gesture of goodwill to the Trump administration, which has sought to pressure China to resume purchases of agricultural products. Earlier on Friday, the Trump administration had exempted hundreds of Chinese products from tariffs.
    The reasoning behind the change of plans was not immediately clear. The White House did not respond to an email requesting comment.
    “I have to regrettably tell that according to updated agenda of the Chinese delegation, Vice Minister Han and his team have to return to China earlier than previously planned,” an official at the Chinese embassy told the Montana bureau, according to Colnar. “Therefore, they have to make their visit to beautiful Montana in the future.”
    Speaking to reporters on Friday, Trump signaled he was not in a rush to complete a trade deal with China. The president has repeatedly said that the more than yearlong dispute could run into 2020 or beyond.

    “I’m not looking for a partial deal,” Trump said. “We’re looking for the big deal. We’ve taken it to this level.”
    Just as the two sides were thought to be on the cusp of a deal in May, talks between the two sides abruptly broke down. They have since slapped further tariffs on thousands of each other’s products and pledged to target more by the end of the year.

    You will see one under your bed too.

    Seriously, there never was a “miracle of Dunkirk”, yet another WW2-propaganda lie.

    https://youtu.be/S5QBye6-ToM

    Hitler-NAZI didn’t slaughter retreating British troops in order not to further escalate the war, a war he never wanted in the first place. Once he had steamrolled France, in response to allied initiatives in Norway and the Netherlands, he made a peace offer (group hug, everybody going home), but obviously WC was not interested, as he knew he had the US and USSR on his side, since 1934, waiting for the proper moment to enter the war and divide the European loot amongst themselves.

    After WW3/CW2, this will be common knowledge, after the US will have been disappeared from history, like the USSR and we finally can bury the 20th century.

    Hit a guy while he’s down eh.

    One more prediction.
    If Trump is not taken out of office ASP, the world will believe WE are the idiots for hanging on to this world class faker.

    As for China, they NEVER wasted a crisis.
    It’s all or nothing for the USD now.

    The REAL war is not with Iran.
    China needs Iranian oil to survive, Iran will sell it to them. From that day forward USD gets minimized. The US can NO Longer borrow at
    cut rates. (if at all)

    (Bitcoin hit $4,000)

    EVERYTHING hinges on a steady supply of oil.
    That is no longer the case.

    If Trump loses, an even greater insanity will occupy the White House, but I hope it is Warren.

    If Trump wins it means the US is destroyed even faster by suicide in many forms: economy, ecology, pollution, trade, loss of the USD as the world’s reserve, and possibly…civil war.

    It’s just so that AGW is the perfect agenda for the left in their figth against Western Civilisation and the white man.
    CO2 and Methane are probably both active forces in global warming, but as it seems now, only marginaly.
    The greatest influence of “anthropogene global warming” is probably in the heads of green leftists, producing a lot of hot air in the debate.

    “A lot of China’s citicens would love to see their government go down, and with them the ruling, racistic Han tribe.”

    That would be a wrong assessment. China is around for thousands of years and always was authoritarian. Most ordinary Chinese are (rightfully) proud on their achievements and have a don’t-rock-the-boat mentality and the vast majority is joyfully anticipating that finally their xxl country is going to be the next #1, as they will.

    And pulleeze spare me that kosher-sourced “racism”-baloney. Everybody on this planet is a “racist”, meaning “having a preference for your own kind”. Only exceptionalist and globalist Americans are brainwashed by their kosher owners via their media not to have that sentiment and hence by definition are destined to vanish from the planet, overrun by third world storm troopers and gate crashers, (en passant solving a lot of problems for Europe that finally will be liberated from America so it can begin to repair itself from libtardism).

    China will be for Europe what the USSR was for the US in the thirties: a convenient tool for Europe c.q. the US to give each other a geo-political haircut.

    Now why don’t you start bombing Iran or parade with carriers in the SCS, or both, to see what I mean. I may be a white racialist, but as long as US whites keep operating in the globalist interest of uncle Schmull, I can only hope they get their…

    Allow me to quote myself:

    “And pulleeze spare me that kosher-sourced “racism”-baloney. Everybody on this planet is a “racist”, meaning “having a preference for your own kind”. Only exceptionalist and globalist Americans are brainwashed by their kosher owners via their media not to have that sentiment and hence by definition are destined to vanish from the planet, overrun by third world storm troopers and gate crashers”

    Paul Craig Roberts is a civilized man, a humanist and liberal Republican and a man of courage. He became a dissident of the US empire, a historic revisionist, even embracing David Irving. He is a 9/11-truther. To somewhat quote DJT: “there is not a sadistic, supremacist bone in his body”.

    Roberts has just become a white nationalist:

    https://russia-insider.com/en/end-white-america-now-assured/ri27594

    “The End of White America Is Now Assured”

    “The Brookings Institution is not a racist white supremacist outfit. It is a neoliberal/neoconservative “think tank.” One of its members, William H. Frey, has authored a report, “Less than Half of U.S. Children Under 15 Are White, Census Shows,” based on the recently released 2018 U.S. Census Bureau report.”

    That’s not necessarily bad news for PBM-Europe (or China). It simply means that the empire is evaporating before our eyes, decades before Europe will, or would rather.

    Combined with Brexit it means Eurasia can hold Anglo-Zionism so long under water until it no longer moves and divide the loot between PBM (parts of North-America) and China (Down Under), 1945-style.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Percentages_agreement

    Most Americans, incl. those with the silly MAGA-hats, have not yet woken up to the fact that the empire is over and that white Americans will have to reinvent themselves, for starters by thinking about how to save their white asses.

    Fortunately, their older brothers from Europe, recognizable by vile natzi-grins on their faces, are standing by to give a helping hand here, after all, that’s what brothers are for, so we can roll back not only 1918/1945, but even, to a limited extent, 1776.

    Welcome home, guys!

    Cloggie, you usually sound rational until you go off on the “Europe survives the fall and takes over parts of the US” theme. (Or your renewables delusion.) I have not read one positive article about Europe in at least five years. Nor about the US for that matter. The West is going down.

    Three of the five countries with the lowest minus interest rates are: Switzerland, Denmark, and Sweden, followed by Israel and (drum roll please!) Japan! The rest of Europe is sliding down the same slippery slope into the Great Leveling or, you might call it, the Greatest Depression. When/if it ends, the world will not be close to what it is today. Much more 3rd worldish all over. You might say, “level”.

    There is only one country on the planet that is self-sufficient and has the resources to survive and grow and that is Russia. China knows that and their relationship is growing tighter by the day, to the horror of the US. The US wants to control Russia’s vast resources and is being frustrated at every turn.

    “Edging Closer To A Brexit Deal (Might Even Be A Fair One)”
    https://tinyurl.com/y34vz2oj money maven

    “What Happened? The EU now realizes Boris Johnson really wants a deal. Johnson may have been forced into that position by Parliament but that is the state of affairs. Boris Johnson, DUP, and Ireland are coming to terms on how to remove the backstop. The EU realizes the losses will not most be on the UK. Germany is outright scared as I stated from the beginning. The EU understands the Liberal Democrats will not win the election. The EU realizes that Boris Johnson is likely to win an election and the result will be No Deal unless it happens now. Labour’s position of promising a referendum with a pledge to campaign against it makes no sense to the EU (or any reasonable person). Point six was likely the last straw but point three is what forced the issue. Still, this was all a no-go without point two. Fair Deal Increasingly Likely Removal of the backstop is now a given. That’s going to happen. But the backstop is not the only odious thing. At a minimum, Johnson needs to insist on removal of language that puts the UK at the mercy of the European Court of Justice (ECJ). Johnson also needs to strive for a Canada-style deal. This does not have to be resolved now, just the groundwork. The closer he can come to that, the better things will be for both the EU and the UK. Finally, and importantly, the EU needs to come up with a deal that Parliament will ratify. If the EU wants a deal, it has to bend. Juncker signals the EU really wants a deal. Increasing Odds of a Deal Yesterday I wrote Increasing Odds of a Bad Brexit Deal as Liberal Democrats Leap Ahead of Labour That is still true. But the odds of a fair deal have increased as well. Thus, the odds of No Deal have fallen. Ironic Setup I told people for months the EU would deal if someone would back them into a corner. Many thought I was nuts. I don’t blame them but I have watched the EU in action for years and just like magic there is a compromise at the 11 hour. That’s what is happening now.”

    There are more and more evidence that variations in the sun’s magnet field is the real culprit when it comes to the bigger climate changes through history.
    https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2019/09/17/global-warming-and-the-leftist-war-on-western-industrial-society-parts-i-and-ii/

    It’s just so that AGW is the perfect agenda for the left in their figth against Western Civilisation and the white man.
    CO2 and Methane are probably both active forces in global warming, but as it seems now, only marginaly.
    The greatest influence of “anthropogene global warming” is probably in the heads of green leftists, producing a lot of hot air in the debate.

    Mrginally claes? We are approaching the CO2 levels of prehistoric times when:

    “February is one of the first months since before months had names to boast carbon dioxide concentrations at 400 parts per million.* ……Such CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere have likely not been seen since at least the end of the Oligocene 23 million years ago,…. an 11-million-year-long epoch of gradual climate cooling that most likely saw CO2 concentrations drop from more than 1,000 ppm. Those of us alive today breathe air never tasted by any of our ancestors in the entire Homo genus….Climate change is inevitable and, if history is any guide to what can be expected, so, too, may be regime change.”

    What happens when the “imaginary” heat melts enough water to stop the Gulf Stream that brings livable weather to Europe? Can you live like an Eskimo? lol
