Just a quick reminder: we could well be finished soon. Yes, the WWF are back with new results that confirm the worst: the arctic ice caps are melting even faster than we thought. As the ice melts and more of the surface is water, the temperatures rises more because the water can absorbe heat that would be reflected by the ice. The climate doesn\’t change in a linear fashion: it has sudden flips. It can sustain stability, like a canoeist, under immense pressure from different fluctuations. But beyond a certain point, it capsizes. The tipping point as far as arctic ice is concerned is that elusive point when nothing we can do can make any difference at all, and it has just got closer. If the tipping point is reached soon, then the arctic ice is gone for good.
Apart from the blithering ignorance of the science (the arctic ice floats, you see, so melting would not lead to higher sea levels, as one example) there are really only two questions for Lenin:
1) Will all of this happen before or after Captialism collapses of its own inherent contradictions.
2) Will this happen before or after the inevitable arrival of true communism?
