The Vileness of “Progressives” on the Climate Crisis

>

 
 
There is one and only one way to avert the worst of the climate crisis:
 
Stop emitting greenhouse gases; stop destroying sinks; rebuild sinks on a massive scale.
 
All else is a lie. Most of all, the Big Lie is that anything constructive can be done within the congenitally destructive framework of capitalism, productionism, the economic civilization. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar who really cares nothing about the climate crisis or any other part of the great ecological crisis, other than seeing these as an opportunity to tout scams.
 
For example, our “progressives” and “the left” are peas in a pod with George Bush in proclaiming that “the American way of life”, in all its wastefulness, destructiveness, and ugliness, “is non-negotiable.” Therefore, for them just as much as for corporations and rightists, the only true solution, which requires the complete end of this nightmarish “way of life”, is a non-starter, indeed is inconceivable.
 
For progressives just as much as for ExxonMobil the ecological assault not only must continue but must escalate at all times. In the case of those who cry crocodile tears over the climate, the general assault must be augmented with yet another vicious assault in the name of “doing something about the climate.” Yes, they want to do something all right: They want massive, ecologically destructive industrial projects in order allegedly to “capture” carbon. In reality none of these would work. The only way to capture carbon is to stop emitting; stop destroying natural sinks; rebuild natural sinks on a massive scale.
 
But that would require them to give up their worthless appliances, their worthless gadgets, their worthless industries, most of all their worthless cars. And like I said, “progressives” are every bit as materialistic, every bit as much nothing but the appendages of their machines and gadgets, and have every bit as much a hatred and destruction-lust toward the Earth as the fattest, most civilization-dependent conservative.
 
There are more and more calls for this destruction campaign on the part of the progressive climate crocodiles. By now you can count on finding such calls on a daily basis as such pseudo-left sites as Counterpunch and Common Dreams.
 
(They also often tout the equally vile scam of mass-murdering trees in order to burn them as wood pellets. This campaign of destruction is especially popular in Europe; indeed a major purpose of the sham Paris accord is to greenwash this absolutely destructive practice, which of course only increases GHG emissions and the destruction of sinks. It’s probably even worse in these ways than the biofuel scam which was once all the rage among these same climate-crying frauds.)
 
The most psychopathic scam, increasingly popular among these scammers, is geoengineering. This most of all proves how much they hate the natural environment, want to destroy it completely, and cherish the notion of artificially engineering it. This most of all demonstrates the fundamental affinity between progressives/leftists and corporations/rightists, how there’s no difference between them, and how “the left” offers no alternative to the infinite nightmare of productionism, technocracy, and total ecological death. This of course also would mean the extinction of humanity since you actually can’t destroy the basis of your physical existence (the ecology) and replace it with something else. We see the fundamental insanity which is shared completely across the entire political spectrum.
 
This also shows us why those who claim to care about the climate crisis never want actually to do anything about it. The climate crocodiles want to destroy the living Earth and replace it with an artificially engineered one. Their one and only objection to GHG-driven climate change is that it’s an uncontrolled engineering. But offer them the prospect of what they delusionally see as controlled engineering and they become euphoric.
 
That’s the only way it’s possible one could react to the climate crisis and the general ecological crisis by wanting to add a vastly worse ecological assault on top of the ongoing assault. All these crises are the direct result of civilization’s “engineering”. So your answer is to radically escalate the engineering? Any sane person would see how psychotic this is.
 
Geoengineering and massive techno-“capture” projects in general add up to this prescription: When you find you’re in a pit, keep digging, harder and harder. Use explosives. Use nukes.
 
Except I’m not convinced that even full-scale nuclear war would be as ecologically destructive as geoengineering, the most vile idea ever propagated.
