I haven't dug too much into this as a disclaimer and it is both "Well, that makes sense because it's always projection" and "This is bad shit insane conspiracy stuff and I don't have time to make sure it isn't complete batshit insane stuff."

quote [ So the most interesting thing about Clash isn’t how it’s an allegory for late capitalism. (Isn’t everything? Isn’t that the point?) It’s that Clash makes especially clear how everything is interchangeable under such a system. ]

quote [ Countries are asking the UN to play down the need to move rapidly away from fossil fuels. ]

It's kind of an open secret that most Climate Change reports already have to err on the conservative side if they want to be published which is why it's kinda fucking terrifying when the IPCC's report for avoiding the worst case scenario requires the scaling up of technology that's basically vaporware to offset the fact we're not dialing back our fossil fuel usage and they're still being asked to tone it down.

A good read about concepts like national parks and sustainable agriculture.
