A Survival Strategy for the
- Replace social rulers and capitalism
- Implement the rational crisis response
- No more global warming: cool the Earth
- Urgently and ethically deploy SRM
Fixating on emissions reductions is ecocidal. The young must demand the rational strategy: block the Sun, minimize emissions, and remove unsafe gases.
The international community has broken its repeated vows to avoid unsafe GHG concentrations. “Net-zero emissions” is the latest instance of this betrayal.
This phone interview with Sam Mitchell of Collapse Chronicles took place on Sept. 17, 2019. I first outline the analysis and strategy in Ecological Survival and Revolutionary Change. In the discussion segment I defend my identification of the military as a critical revolutionary force.
The goal of net-zero emissions, which is now being peddled by everyone from politicians to progressives to the Pope, is a travesty and a betrayal.
From the intellectual perspective, humankind faces two major challenges in tackling the ecological crisis. The first is that the problem is massive and unprecedented, which means that critical areas such as economic theory and social organization must be rethought from the ground up.
