For System Change - Not Climate Change

People & Planet before Profit

Catastrophe faces our planet because of climate change. A whole number of studies, reports and films such as Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth have highlighted this fact.

In February of this year, a report written by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) showed that temperatures could rise as much as 6.4OC by the end of this century. Already climate change has resulted in the doubling of category four and five storms in the last 30 years, while arctic ice has thinned by 40% in the last 40 years.

While climate change effects our planet as a whole, it is the world’s workers and poor who will bear the brunt. If major action is not taken to halt climate change then 600 million more people in sub-Saharan Africa will go hungry from collapsing agriculture, 400 million more will be exposed to malaria and 200 million people will be forced to migrate due to rising sea levels, according to the United Nations Development Programme......

I don't think it's possible or necessary to end capitalism in order to slow down climate change; all that needs to be done is institute a carbon ration on the national level and a contraction and convergence scheme on the international level.

More realistic, equally effective (probably more so).

I don't see how socialism is any guarantee of sustainability.

Anyone interested in looking at the idea of carbon rationing - for individuals - where everyone has an equal carbon ration - rich and poor - first world and third world - have a look at George Monbiot's book 'Heat'. I find it a very compelling idea.
