    It’s good to respect efforts and successes, the curves have bent and we need to explain that as it’s hard to perceive through the inertia, but the world is bigger than US, and stage eight needs a lot more elaboration …

    No.

    Thousands of people are dying of heat stroke across the globe every year.

    If that is “close to winning” for you, you’re an asshole.

      Then let’s get out into the streets and start protesting stuff more before its too late. If the ruling class doesn’t like it, we should start breaking shit

        The protests are already breaking a lot of the fossil fuel industry. The simple truth is that the inflation reduction act means cheap American EVs on a massive scale. That removes most of the US oil consumption. Renewables and gas have taken out most coal electricity generation in the US and renewables are starting to kill gas as well. So local demand in the US for oil and gas is going to fall in the coming years

        So by blocking or just delaying exports, this is becoming a rather large problem for the US.

        That is on top of China investing a lot into renewables and the EU being probably even further along, with some fairly powerfull legislation. Seriously we are getting very close to peak emissions and that means the death of the fossil fuel industry is starting.

        That’s an action you’re suggesting to make it more likely (although probably not much more) to win though, not an argument against the statement that it’s far from winning.
