Xi Jinping at UN General Assembly: We will not build new coal power plants abroad. Will support developing countries in developing green energy. That is a massive shift and leaves no international financing for new coal.

this is the line of thinking that pushed me to quit working for ad co’s. inducing demand = producing carbon, most forms of advertising need to be outlawed yesterday.

(b) sufficient access to affordable, high quality energy SERVICES. I will die on this bloody hill. 5⃣ What every single last degrowther understands, and an apparently endless army of US "thought leaders" doesn't, is that acting on climate requires reducing aggregate demand. 5/

working for google and, say, buying sustainable is an irrational position. examine the point of production (of goods and demand), not consumption.

I’m a union longshoreman. I make $100k/year and I’m not sorry. I’m also a socialist and not because I fetishize poverty, but because I think everyone who works for a living deserves wages like I got. People who can’t work deserve the good life too. It’s called solidarity.
everybody's a socialist until you tell people who make 100k/year that they also need to distribute their wealth and then it's all "it's my money, i earned it, why should you be allowed to tell me what to do with it"

Shoplifters are merely engaging in a market arbitrage opportunity between brick & mortar retailers and Amazon.
Wow. I had never thought about how 3p marketplaces made it so much more profitable to steal in bulk from retailers. Super obvious, just hadn't thought about it. wsj.com/articles/cvs-home-de…

With this recall behind us, now would be a good time to amend California law so that if a Governor is recalled the Lieutenant Governor becomes Governor until the next election.

Without enemies or adversaries there is no unity of purpose. Politics is arena of democratic conflict from which consensus only emerges as a result of the fight between different social forces. If you don’t pick an enemy, your enemy will always have a better one.
