With Ever More Powerful Corporate Lobby, How Can We Hope for any Results from Paris?

"Two weeks to save the World in Paris."

"Paris is the moment of truth for our climate."

In the coming months leading up to the UN climate negotiations in Paris you’re likely to hear a lot more statements like these. But the negotiations are now so dominated by corporate interests that they are very unlikely to conclude in a deal that offers any solution for people are the climate.

"We can no longer place our faith in the corporate-controlled negotiations. Rather we must grow the movement for democratic and sustainable energy."

This is correct. Continuing to imagine that the "important" matters have to do with "the will of the President" or the intentions of the negotiators is to continue on the road to hell.

We need to continue to organize a movement that can IMPOSE REAL COSTS on the predatory profiteering extractivists and their political lackeys.

All that is necessary for catastrophic climate change to happen is that good people do nothing to stop it. - Wereflea
