Stand up to Fossil Fuel Giants

Fighting climate change beyond Qatar.

Today, delegates from nearly two hundred nations are gathering in Qatar for the UN's COP18 – the latest round of UN climate talks aimed at cutting greenhouse-gas emissions.

While they all try to talk it out in Qatar, Bill McKibben and his grassroots initiative with 350.org may achieve far more on the ground than any solemn swear of re-commitment to the Kyoto Protocol will at Qatar. This new < a href="http://math.350.org">campaign is spreading an urgent message face-to-face all over the country, as this group of activists visit over twenty cities in the USA. Their message: it's simple math. We can burn 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming – anything more than this risks total catastrophe for all life on the planet. The problem: fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five more times the safe amount . . . And they’re planning to burn it all – unless we rise up to stop them.

As human beings we have to do something fast before it is too late. I agree use the sun as a source of energy, because it is free for all of humankind.

I would think that the Tar Sands of Alberta should be the number one target when it comes to future emission issues. They are going full steam ahead with massive construction and massive investment with nobody standing in their way. I think their motto is build as big and as quickly as they can before the rest of the world notices. Than they can say it's too late.

The reason we are going to burn all this fossil fuel is because it's a "predictable" outcome, ie. we sell the carbon, we get super rich, we create secure communities of super rich to survive the apocalypse, we win. If we *don't* sell all the carbon, and allow renewables to provide a solution, we just become dinosaurs and decline while the rest of the world prospers. What's the point of that!?! Thus, we shall sell all the fossil fuels and let you kill yourselves with it. That's how we win. We are the 'true believers' in climate change.

Thank you, I have recently been searching for information about this subject for a long time and yours is the greatest I have came upon so far. But, what in regards to the conclusion? Are you positive in regards to the supply?

Anonymous Posted on Go Christian! So now you can stop your crabbing bacuese I am commenting! I am so glad it works now. You better be backing your info up. Out of all people in this world I would think that you would have had this done already. I guess that old saying about assuming is correct!

When we set out to speak of society we are met at every place with complex behavioral characteristics for which very few, if any, principle motive forces are agreed upon; this in essence gives way to the boundless economic theories which prevail in victorious disorganization. This would not be so burdensome if the fantastic brunt of chaotic force were not aimed at the heart of civility, the very word on which we must admit any definition of progress depends.

In such respects, I am compelled to think that we are not so cursed as to be forever subjected to the confusion that the economists of this day offer…

We observe that GDPs of countries so closely align with their energy consumption that we must be very determined to see if correlation is not yet a cause. But this I think would be the wrong question to ask, for what we really want to know is if these are one and the same observation. We find that the value of money is the goods and services that the money will render, and that all goods and services can be considered forms of energies, and so we must ask if the value of money, IS energy?

In order to know what motive forces can guide our philosophic relation of money to energy, of paramount importance is the definition of Value, and by reflection I find that Value is a relation to the self that renders the self more influence, and thereby POWER, according to the nature of the self. Noting that power is the “object” of control [order], and noting that entropy is described as a measure of [disorder] which determines the direction of flow, it is to be wondered if the human attraction to Value can not in a similar way determine the direction of flows within the economic system?

This question forces the sobering view of capitalism as it is found…
