Running out of fossil fuels, just as the impacts of CO2 emissions spiral out of control, may appear serendipitous. Yet both spell the unravelling of global industrial civilisation and of the livelihoods of 8 billion people.
As Steve Bull observes: ‘We have hit significant diminishing returns on our extraction of fossil fuels. This is extremely problematic not only because they support virtually all of the complexities necessary for our very survival but because we continue to be beholden to systems that perpetuate the predicament, especially the pursuit of the infinite growth chalice.’
Selling the #BrightGreenLie of a ‘renewable’ alternative is nothing more than the new frontier of capitalism and imperialism. End #CollapseCapitalism and seek socio-ecological justice.
