To save Mother Earth: Change the system

first_imgProgressive and liberal-thinking intellectuals have noted that the issue of global warming is so critical that it is “the biggest issue of our or any time” and that if environmental catastrophe “isn’t going to be averted, then in a generation or two, everything else we’re talking about won’t matter.” (Counterpunch, Feb. 9)Despite the climate deniers in Washington, it is absolutely true that the capitalist system’s long war on Mother Earth is creating devastation of epic proportions. A genuine, worldwide humanitarian crisis exists as a result of climate change, and it will only intensify as the planet continues to warm.Billions of people are and will be affected, primarily people of color, as the oppressed continue to live with the ravishing effects of colonial and imperialist domination.What are the immediate tasks activists can fight for to address this crisis?Call for disarming the Pentagon; end all U.S. wars of intervention. Hands off Syria, north Korea, Afghanistan and Venezuela.Money for social services, not war.Fight for more than the Paris Accords; fight for real sustainability.Return Standing Rock and all Indigenous land to their original owners.Support #NoDAPL; demand money for union jobs producing renewable energy instead of fossil fuels.Take the lead from Cuba and China, which incorporate fighting the consequences of climate change and phasing out dependence on fossil fuels into their economic plans.Full reparations for victims of climate change, including survivors of hurricanes Katrina and Sandy; take the money from Big Oil; instead of unnecessary and looting insurance policies, provide affordable, quality housing for all victims of storms, floods and fires, ­uninsured or not.March on May Day 2017 and support the call for a strike by immigrants and other workers. No to the wall!Make the oil corporations and billionaires pay to reverse the terrible damage they have caused.Fight to change the system; fight for revolutionary socialism!Make Doomsday for the capitalistsIn mid-January, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists moved the Doomsday Clock ahead to two and half minutes before midnight, symbolizing the extreme danger represented by the Donald Trump administration.The clock was established in 1947, with “midnight” a symbolic warning that the world is close to a nuclear or existential catastrophe. The clock had been at three minutes to midnight since the early 1980s.Should activists drop other issues, like the war at home on migrants, police terror or attacks on the working class like Medicaid cuts, to fight for the climate? Should we stop organizing against the Trump administration’s war abroad in Syria, Afghanistan or north Korea?Of course not. These issues are all connected.The key is to turn these struggles into a struggle against the capitalist system as a whole and to fight to build a new system: socialism. The key is to develop a long-term goal of fighting for the environment while at the same time struggling to change the system.Climate change may indeed be one of the biggest reasons why the movement must fight for socialism, as it affects every single living species. If we were to rid the world of the profit motive and build and organize society for the people, the quality of life would immediately ­improve.One could argue that the fight for socialism here in the U.S. is so important that it is indeed decisive for activists to make their struggle, whatever issue that may be, a class struggle against the capitalist class.As the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. noted years ago, U.S. imperialism is the “greatest purveyor of violence in the world” — a truth long before Donald Trump came along.In fact, the Pentagon — the very ones who dropped the U.S.’s largest ­non-nuclear bomb on impoverished Afghanistan a few days ago — is the world’s biggest institutional consumer of petroleum products. The Pentagon is the world’s worst polluter of greenhouse gas emissions, yet the generals hovering over the White House have a blanket exemption from adhering to any international climate agreements!This exemption includes more than 1,000 U.S. bases in more than 130 countries around the world, 6,000 military facilities in the U.S., as well as aircraft carriers and jet aircraft. Also excluded are weapons testing and U.S./U.N.-sanctioned activities of so-called “peacekeeping” and “humanitarian ­relief.” (WW, Sept. 4, 2014)Unlike the Trumpites, the Pentagon does not deny climate change. But their solution is more militarism, the “survival of the fittest” mentality, instead of defending humanity.For example, in 2003 the Defense Department issued a report titled “An Abrupt Climate Change Scenario and Its Implications for United States National Security.” It stated that the catastrophic effects of climate change compel wealthy nations like the U.S. to “construct defensive fortresses” to shut out climate refugees, of which there are millions and there will be more. It called for more money for the military, which the Trump administration has been happy to provide.In other words, build walls, not solidarity or renewable energy.It is the working class and the oppressed who will be most affected by climate change. The rich and powerful capitalist class has its preparations for the Doomsday clock. The working class must also prepare by fighting to change the system.The rich have their economic cushion to deal with any crisis, including climate change. In fact, CNN recently ran a report titled “Billionaire bunkers: How the 1% are preparing for the apocalypse.” (March 20) It reported on companies that are building military-level secure housing, called DoomsDay Dwellings, with 9-foot-thick walls and a 161-foot-high protective dome. Some bunkers come with a five-year supply of food for each resident and can be lowered into the ground on a hydraulic pump. Costs run from $25,000 to $8 million each.Some can house up to 5,000 people.The CNN report added that the ­Texas-based Rising S Company “says 2016 sales for their custom, high-end underground bunkers grew 700% compared to 2015, while overall sales have grown 300% since the November U.S. presidential election alone.”Rich have the Pentagon;workers have the powerWhat can stop the oil corporations, the Pentagon and all those who are devastating Mother Earth? Can we appeal to them to stop emitting the gases now warming the planet?The time to appeal is long over. What is needed is revolutionary change, and that begins by understanding that neither the system nor the capitalist government — whether it’s an Obama or a Trump at the helm — can resolve this crisis.Massive upheaval is the only solution to climate change.May Day 2017 provides an opportunity to “Shut shit down” in defense of the most targeted workers, like immigrants and the Black community, but also all workers.Those participating in the People’s Climate March on Washington on April 29, who come from more privileged backgrounds, must also come out two days later, May Day, to defend migrants who have risked their low-wage pay by demanding an end to Trump’s war against them. Workers who face reprisals for marching on May Day should get support from environmental activists.It must be remembered that many past climate change actions have been politically ambiguous and have included fronts for the very corporations that are polluting the earth.In anticipation of the Sept. 21, 2014, climate march in New York and other cities globally, activist Chris Hedges pointed out that The Climate Group, which endorsed the march, included among its members and sponsors BP, Dow Chemical, Duke Energy, HSBC, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase.“The Environmental Defense Fund,” wrote Hedges, “which says it ‘work[s] with companies rather than against them’ and which is calling on its members to join the march, has funding from the oil and gas industry and supports fracking as a form of alternative energy.“These faux environmental organizations are designed to neutralize resistance,” he concluded. “And their presence exposes the march’s failure to adopt a meaningful agenda or pose a genuine threat to power.” (alternet.org, Sept. 8, 2014)A demonstration of 500,000 can become a nice walk in the sun with that kind of program, while a demonstration of 5,000 — if it has revolutionary class politics — can be more of a threat to the capitalist class if its goal is to shut the system down.Socialism the answer to climate changeThe #1 sustainable country in the world is revolutionary socialist Cuba. It is so not because the Cubans love their beaches or coral reefs, which are 1,000 percent healthier than those in Florida.The Cubans do love their beaches, but that’s not why it is a sustainable country. It is because it is a socialist country, with revolutionary leaders who are guided by Marxism. The banks do not dictate policy; the masses do. The Cubans don’t drop bombs abroad; they send doctors.The website publication The Daily Good ran an article on April 7 titled “While America Launches Missiles, China Quietly Leads on Climate Change.” Among other things, it stated: “China has gone from perpetual climate scapegoat to a major leader in the global transition away from fossil fuels. …“China plans to spend more than $360 billion on renewable energy sources like solar and wind, a plan that is projected to create more than 13 million jobs by 2020. Roughly 3.5 million Chinese workers are already employed in the renewable energy sector — nearly half of the global total and represents nearly four times as many clean energy jobs as exist in the United States.”In fact, the Chinese government has carried out groundbreaking projects to deal with this problem that should shame the U.S. government.This is what can happen if the workers — not the Pentagon or Wall Street — dictate society.It is capitalism that created the climate crisis; it is capitalism that must pay the bill. It is time for us to collect.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

More Rain in the Week Ahead

first_img More Rain in the Week AheadRyan MartinHAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin says the good news is that we’re ahead of schedule with planting in many parts of the state. The bad news is that if you’re not done, good planting windows might be hard to come by in the near-term.“We’re going to put together about 3.5 days of rain back-to-back-to-back. Our next dry window comes in late Monday afternoon going through Tuesday, but that’s going to be about it.”Martin projects rain totals over the next few days to be anywhere between a quarter inch to maybe an inch and a half if we see thunderstorms. He says most of the state will see rain at least a couple of times between now and Monday afternoon.“Mid-week next week brings another chance of rain. Totals probably a few hundredths of an inch all the way up to 3 quarters in the right spot with coverage about 70 percent. And then we actually see another weather system trying to come in as we go into the first part of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. We’ll follow that up with another system, maybe, as we get toward June 4 or so. So, we see slightly bigger windows of opportunity the farther out we go in the forecast window. We also think those windows of opportunity could close as we get closer to them.”This week’s planting forecast made possible by First Farmers Bank and Trust, Proudly Serving Local Farmers, and by Kokomo Grain.

The Additional Advocate General for the State of U.P. stated before the Bench of Justice Rajeev Singh and Justice Ramesh Sinha that the proceedings against all the persons have been dropped, “as there is no further apprehension to breach of peace or disturbance of public tranquility”. It may be noted that last week, the Allahabad High Court had asked the Uttar Pradesh authorities to explain as to why Sub-Divisional Magistrates issued notices to farmers with tractors to furnish ‘exorbitant personal bonds’ in the wake of farmers protests. A division bench of Justices Ramesh Singha and Rajeev Singh had passed the order in a PIL filed challenging the notices issued under Section 111 of the Code of Criminal Procedure on January 19 asking farmers to furnish personal bond in the range of Rs 50,000 to Rupees 10 lakhs and two sureties for the like amount citing apprehension of breach of law and order amid farmers protests. Interestingly¸ the Court on Tuesday noted that when a query was made from Additional Advocate General for the reason for issuing notice for filing personal bond and two sureties, he could not justify the act of the Sub-Divisional Magistrates (SDM) of various divisions working under the District Magistrate, Sitapur calling upon, through the impugned notice, the farmers owing tractors for furnishing personal bond and two sureties of such executed amount. Further, he stated before the Court that the matter be disposed of (as the proceedings have been dropped) and he also assured that he shall instruct the District Magistrate Sitapur-respondent No.2 to be careful in future while any such proceedings are initiated so that no unnecessary harassment is caused to any person and further to instruct the SDMs working under him. To this, the Court remarked, “In view of the above statement made by Additional Advocate General, we hope and trust that the respondent No.2-District Magistrate Sitapur and the SDMs working under him shall be cautious in passing orders in any proceedings of such a nature calling upon the persons to execute personal bond and sureties and their orders, act and conduct should not be such which reflects arbitrariness and against the principles of natural justice.” With the aforesaid observations, the instant petition stood disposed of.

TPFG and Hunters given ANOTHER week to make announcement

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » TPFG and Hunters given ANOTHER week to make announcement previous nextAgencies & PeopleTPFG and Hunters given ANOTHER week to make announcementHunters says discussions remain ‘ongoing’ despite starting on December 4th following a Sky leak.Nigel Lewis25th January 202102,190 Views The City mergers and acquisitions oversight panel has given TPFG a further week to complete negotiations over its purchase of rival Hunters under Rule 2.6(c) of the Takeover Code.This is the second extension granted after TPFG’s intentions became public following a leak to Sky News on 4th December. The two sides then had until 22nd December to seal a deal, but this was extended until 22nd January, which has now been prolonged by a further week to the 29th January.The purchase of Hunters by TPFG should be straightforward because TPFG, which operates the Martin & Co and Ewemove national estate agency brands, is offering to buy the entire share capital of Hunters, which is a profitable and expanding company.DelayOnly two problems are likely to be requiring more time – unexpected holes in Hunters accounts created by Covid and/or negotiations with its senior team (pictured) over the price offered for the agency.Hunters is currently valued at approximately at £23 million based on its current share price of 70p, which is just 5p below its launch price of 75p back in January 2016. Hunters is also due to release its results for 2020 at any moment, although like most other franchised corporate estate agencies, it is likely to have survived Covid well. In 2019, its strong sales operation helped the chain enjoy a robust performance which included overall group revenue up by 7% to £42.4 million.The deal, which was unearthed by infamous City reporter Mark Kleinman, was revealed so early in the process that negotiations have now had to be conducted at speed.“Whilst the Company has made a preliminary approach to the board of Hunters, there can be no certainty that any firm offer will be made for Hunters, nor as to the terms on which any offer might be made,” TPFG said at the time.In January last year Hunters claimed to the largest agency in the UK by property sales after Purplebricks and Countrywide from 206 branches.The Property Franchise Group PLC Martin & Co Hunters The Property Franchise Group TPFG January 25, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
