Global warming is unstoppable while capitalism blocks prevention 1.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Ed Finn The tenacious refusal of the world’s business and political leaders to heed the warnings of climate scientists about global warming raises the stark possibility that it may already be too late. The tipping point beyond which concerted preventive action becomes impracticable is just 12 years away, according to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. That’s all the time the IPCC scientists give us to keep the global temperature from rising above 1.5 degrees Celsius. If it rises higher than that, they warn, the consequent intensity of extreme heat, pollution, droughts, floods, hurricanes, wildfires, rising sea levels, and consequent mounting hunger, poverty, and mass displacements will annihilate billions of people. Realistically, what are the odds that the scientists’ latest warning about global warming will be heeded, any more than their many previous alarms have been in the past? I’d put the odds against at 100-to-1, perhaps even 1,000-to-1. Starting with the Club of Rome’s seminal ...

Is cap and trade in Ontario worth fighting for? 4.10.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Brent Patterson As evidence shows, Ontario Premier Doug Ford is no friend of the environment. The Government of Ontario's website now states, "Effective July 3, 2018, we cancelled the cap-and-trade regulation and prohibited all trading of emission allowances. We have developed a plan to wind down the program." That may prompt the question: should we rally to defend cap and trade? The Toronto Star has explained, "Under a cap-and-trade system, a government sets a cap -- a limit -- on the amount of greenhouse gas emissions various industries can emit into the atmosphere. This limit is gradually reduced over time to decrease total pollution levels." While that may sound OK on first read, climate justice activists and Indigenous allies have raised serious concerns with cap and trade. Cap and trade is a market-based system. The group Environmental Defence, which supports cap and trade, has explained, "Industry and businesses that want to pollute need a permit from the province, and the permits can be traded on ...
