  •  Renewable are still worth pursuing (7+ / 0-)

    but, you're right, not only is continued economic growth a dead-end, only significant reduction in energy demand beyond what appears likely given vested interests, political will, public habits and the umbrella of denial over all of it.

    I think the push for aggressive transition to renewable is worthy in two ways. First, it will reduce emissions, which is the right direction to head and will ultimately reduce, to some extent, the amount of reduction necessary. Second, in order to be "successful" in terms of just being substantive, it would mean that a critical mass of people have embraced the problem and committed to solving it. That's huge. Then maybe that can be converted into facing the truth about the end of shopping as a way of life.

    When 1% take 121% of the gains from "recovery", people actually recovering from lost employment are trading down on wages and benefits. Current strategies by moderates don't even consider winning the Class War.
