Fairly clear then

Unless we act, the future may well be a version of business-as-usual, with all the damage it’s doing to our society and planet. That is a political choice. Alternatively, we can choose to manage the transition so that it addresses deep-seated inequalities and transforms our broken economy, brings life back to our communities and reduces our damaging impact on the planet. Let’s all work together to bring that version of the future into being.

It’s not actually about climate change, that’s an excuse…..

  1. Business as usual? Ace! Do I get to vote for that, or is it just 3 main parties pushing climate hysteria and policies which will impoverish all but the richest?

  2. Yes MC!!! It doesn’t look like I can vote for that in Oz since ScoMo’s now grovelling to the green garbage.

  3. jgh, advocate of civilisation

    But we have never had business-as-usual. Solar panels exist, that’s not business-as-usual. My 20-year-old car gets 50 miles to the gallon, 20 years ago that was impossible, that’s not business-as-usual. We can grow more food on less land than ever in the entire history of humanity, that’s not business-as-usual.

  4. “so that it addresses deep-seated inequalities and transforms our broken economy, brings life back to our communities and reduces our damaging impact on the planet.”

    First prove any of those contentions, eh?

    “Let’s all work together to bring that version of the future into being.”

    Why should I shed sweat and probably tears to humor your fetish?

  5. Spud’s head would be far better shrunken and used on a nodding donkey….ish freak out on the back shelf of a gas guzzling luxury diesel mega-car.

    A fitting end for a low scummy eco-freak.

  6. A counter argument from a sane lefty: burn fossil fuel to help the poor and make world better

    “Keep burning those fossil fuels”
    “The hostility to fossil fuels seems increasingly to be driven by misanthropy rather than reason; by an elitist feeling of revulsion for the gains of modernity rather than by a rational assessment of the undoubted problems humankind still faces” argues Brendan O’Neill

    Well said Brendan

  7. Further to the above… That misanthropy appears to be expressed by that sector of the community that has gained most from the things that they’re most opposed to, and would not be in the positions that they find themselves had things been the way that they campaign for.
