Home   |         NEW: (hypothetically starring) VIC REEVES as LUKE SKYWALKER .. in "Waiting for Godot, the hollywood version".

Some appropriate song titles: "Pay the ghosts" (Transvision vamp), "How the west was won and where it got us" (REM), "Gasoline" (Sheryl Crow).   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Vijay Prashad writes: <<

What prevents a transfer from carbon-based fuel to other fuels is not the stubbornness of this or that country. The main problems are three:

1) The right wing that denies climate change;

2) Sections of the energy industry that have a vested interest in the continuation of the use of carbon-based fuels;

3) The refusal by the Western advanced countries to admit both that they have caused the problem and that they should use their vast wealth to finance the transfer from carbon-based fuels to other fuels in countries whose wealth has been siphoned off to the West.

>>
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Prashad warns: << Meanwhile, developing countries have an ugly choice before them: to forgo carbon, the cheapest fuel, and then forgo social development for their populations; or to continue to use carbon and threaten the planet. These are the only choices if the advanced industrial states refuse to fund the Green Climate Fund, and if they refuse to transfer technology for wind and solar to countries without any financial obligation.

A Green New Deal in the West is not going to be sufficient if this deal does not include trillions of dollars into the UN's Green Climate Fund and the transfer of technology as a social practice and not for profit. >>

Removal of resistance: It is up to the criminal societies of the west to mitigate. Unification: The crimes they have committed are against nature also. If their actions are deemed insufficient by nature, in the end they will find their own organised society as vanished as any other which is a victim to their crimes. Nature is not susceptible to the usual methods such people 'rely' on, such as coercion or bribery. There is no doubt that western societies must now fully pay the entire human race what they owe it. There is no alternative. They cannot go back in time and undo their crimes, so they must now do that which the actions of their society, over the centuries, has placed as a burden on their shoulders - yes, the burden on today's west was placed there not by 'barbarian foreigners' but of the west of yesterday. Huge bills for raping the planet, huge bills for genocide. The bailiff? A big black void called space. Trump wants to turn it into a 'theatre of operations'. Hmm. That's right Trump. Challenge the universe itself to a fight to the death. Be my guest.
