One of the greatest problems today with many environmentalists is that they lack a firm moral philosophy. They’re more about trying to solve our problems with the climate, but want to have their cake and eat it too. They want to have all this fancy, first-world society stuff like modern technology, VR, AI, and other mindless junk we don’t need. They want to sit comfortably surrounded by all our modern technology and still stop the cooling of the planet.

In reality, there is simply no way to rectify our consumerist, capitalistic society with a harmonious existence with nature. It is as if environmentalists have Stockholm syndrome and can’t see it. Of course, I consider myself an environmentalist but at least I realize that there’s a lot of modern comfort we’ll have to give up to actually fix this horrible society and the genocide and damage that we do.

The website 350.org has the statement: “We believe in a safe climate and a better future — a prosperous and equitable world built with the power of ordinary people, driven by renewable energy and rooted in justice.”

Equitable for whom? Human beings only? Because we can’t just fool ourselves to think that the end situation will be equitable for animals and plants. I admire the work done by 350.org, but I think they’re a little disillusioned. They’re like those weak-minded people that attempt to put dollar values on nature. We should not be so placating to capitalism and corporations and put dollar values on nature. We should destroy the hell out of capitalism and its destructive rain.
