Jonathan Moylan, stunts, the working class and fighting climate change

Stunts like Moylan’s will draw attention to the issues at least momentarily and I defend his actions. But to really address climate change, to stop the mining of fossil fuels and to move rapidly to a totally renewable energy society requires the working class entering on to the stage of history and overthrowing the impediment to real change – capitalism. The working class has to be our focus for fundamental change.

Climate change: the snake oil salesmen of capitalism battle it out

Tony Abbott has concocted a climate change ‘direct-action’ plan that should appeal to every denier. Like Labor’s Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme it pretends to do something while refusing to attack the big polluters. Abbott’s ‘plan’ doesn’t stop CO2 emissions; it encourages them. According to Government figures (suspect, but likely to have some truth in them), Abbott’s scheme will […]

Stop work to stop the bosses’ war on the environment

We must turn the world upside down until the polluters and their politicians back down and begin the urgent task of moving to a renewable energy economy and creating hundreds of thousands of high wage green jobs for those displaced by the end of killer coal.

Green jobs: not uranium and bombs

Why bailing out General Motors could help save the environment

The same skills that make the gas guzzling SUVs can be used to make wind turbines, solar panels and hybrid buses.

Is this 1929 or 1989, or both?

Every strike contains the seeds of revolution. Therein lies our hope and our future.

Follow the Maldives Kevin

The Maldives is going carbon neutral. Force Rudd, the Mister Magoo of climate change, to follow them and lead the developed world.

Jobs and posting

I have just accepted a part time job offer working on environmental law.  I am pretty excited by the prospect of learning about a whole new area of policy and law.  For the blog it means my posts might be slightly less frequent (although I love doing this so much I might just end up […]

The spectre of unemployment

A spectre is haunting Australia; the spectre of unemployment. Last month in Australia unemployment went up from 4.8 percent to 5.2 per cent. There are now 590,000 unemployed. The rate of unemployment among 15 to 19 year olds looking for full time work is a little under 24 per cent. There will be at a minimum […]
