“Proposing to run the state as a business has no place in a socialist movement.”

A Socialist Movement? What’s that? A Communist Turd? Socialism has no place in the real world of economics, where Capitalist Economics dictate reality. Only Capitalism balances Supply and demand, using the free market to do so: Socialism means central control, and production centrally planned by armies of Bureaucrats, which has been tried many times and never works.

“we need a plan that develops our ability to seize state control and transition to renewable energy without entrenching capitalist power. Trade Unions for Energy Democracy has a well-developed proposal that combines building worker power and ensuring a sustainable future. Its “Resist, Reclaim and Restructure” plan is international in scope and detailed in its analysis.”

That plan is treason and all these communist ass-holes need to be terminated or imprisoned: they can’t be allowed to unleash a Socialist Dictatorship on the world again. Socialist Revolutions always install Fascist Totalitarian Dictatorships, because the kind of people who will kill to achieve power will never give it up, and will kill to keep it.

Your dream of renewables replacing Fossil fuels will remain a pipe-dream until Fusion power is developed: Screw renewable, unreliable energy! I want my lights on when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow! Give me Coal, Gas or Oil, please!

Climate change is inevitable and switching to unreliable power sources won’t save the Planet: it will just divert resources away from sensible adaptation to the new climatic conditions. Using land-fill to raise coastal areas above the new sea-level, for instance. The Chinese have demonstrated in the South China seas how a group of often inundated reefs can be built up into massive islands with land well above sea-level. The same could be done for the Maldives or other low-lying atolls, if there was the will to do so.

But no, we’d rather push solar panels and wind farms. The sea level has been rising 3mm per year for centuries, and regardless of global warming is expected to continue at much the same rate into the future. That’s not much, but it adds up: 300mm per Century, 3 metres per millennium.
