And yet again big media (corporate or state) avoids the inconvenient non-neocapitalist approved truths

There are three basic pillars of environmental sustainability: reduce, reuse and recycle. Yet government is obsessed solely with recycle, and in trying to create a narrative where 'reduce' merely means 'keep consuming but from a nearer less carbon emitting source'.

Up there in the real list of major things that reduce your climate impact (dying, having less children, not eating much red meat) are also using things until they actually wear out (or become inefficient to the point replacement is justified) and not buying shit you don't need in the first place. Along with that goes buying second hand (reusing) from charity shops and the like.

At the same time some of the most deeply subversive anti-capitalist things most people can do today are using stuff until it wears out, using second hand stuff, and repurposing old broken things to avoid buying new stuff.

Not hard to see why big corporate media doesn't want to talk about it.

Breaking Down Subsidies for Fossil Fuels: How Much Are We Really Spending? Well over US$5.2 trillion in 2017


A new report from the International Monetary Fund shows that countries around the world spent $5.2 trillion on fossil fuel subsidies in 2017. That’s half a trillion dollars more than in 2015.

But it also shows that fossil fuel subsidy spending is down by half since 2012. What gives? How much are we actually spending to make fossil fuels cheaper?

On this episode of The Energy Gang, they’ll clarify the different ways economists are measuring that spending.

Then, U.S. tax subsidies for solar and wind are set to ramp downward as part of a deal struck in 2015. But some are calling for an extension of those credits once again.

Wait, didn’t the industry say it would be just fine without them? They’ll look at arguments for and against another extension.

Holy crap.

The U.S. put nuclear waste under a dome on a Pacific island. Now it’s cracking open.

"Enewetak Atoll was subjected to repeated blasts during the testing, and inhabitants were forced to relocate before the explosions began. Beginning in 1977, 4,000 U.S. service members began collecting an estimated 73,000 cubic meters (2.58 million cubic feet) of tainted surface soil across the islands, according to the Marshall Islands’ government."

"The material was then transported to Runit Island, where a 328-foot crater remained from a May 1958 test explosion. For three years, the American military dumped the material into the crater. Six men reportedly died during the work. Locals took to calling it 'The Tomb', the Guardian reported."

"In 1980, a massive concrete dome — 18 inches thick and s... Show more...

Mining, farming, hydropower and chemical sectors aim to weaken key directives

Industry lobbies are mounting a push to roll back EU clean water regulations, even though less than half of the continent’s rivers, wetlands and lakes are in a healthy state.

The lobby offensive is aimed at weakening the bloc’s floods and water framework directives, which require all states to ensure their waterways are in “good ecological condition” by 2027. Conservation groups say the proposed changes could sound a death knell for several endangered aquatic species.
