The Atlantic: Is America Ready for ‘Degrowth Communism’? – ‘Say goodbye, perhaps, to hamburgers, SUVs, & your annual cross-country flight home for the holidays’

The Atlantic – May 28, 2024: By Christopher Beam – Kohei Saito’s theory of how to solve climate change is economically dubious and politically impossible. Why is it so popular?
Excerpt: The crazy idea is “degrowth communism,” a combination of two concepts that are contentious on their own. Degrowth holds that there will always be a correlation between economic output and carbon emissions, so the best way to fight climate change is for wealthy nations to cut back on consumption and reduce the “material throughput” that creates demand for energy and drives GDP.

The degrowth movement has swelled in recent years, particularly in Europe and in academic circles. The theory has dramatic implications. Instead of finding carbon-neutral ways to power our luxurious modern lifestyles, degrowth would require us to surrender some material comforts. One leading proponent suggests imposing a hard cap on total national energy use, which would ratchet down every year. Energy-intensive activities might be banned outright or taxed to near oblivion. (Say goodbye, perhaps, to hamburgers, SUVs, and your annual cross-country flight home for the holidays.) You’d probably be prohibited from setting the thermostat too cold in summer or too warm in winter. To keep frivolous spending down, the government might decide which products are “wasteful” and ban advertising for them. Slower growth would require less labor, so the government would shorten the workweek and guarantee a job for every person.

Saito did not invent degrowth, but he has put his own spin on it by adding the C word. As for what kind of “communism” we’re talking about, Saito tends to emphasize workers’ cooperatives and generous social-welfare policies rather than top-down Leninist state control of the economy. He says he wants democratic change rather than revolution—though he’s fuzzy on how exactly you get people to vote for shrinkage. This message has found an enthusiastic audience. Saito’s 2020 book, Capital in the Anthropocene, sold half a million copies.

Climate Lockdowns: German Transport Minister floats driving ban on the weekends to meet climate-related goals

https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2024/05/no_driving_on_the_weekends.html By Eric Utter   Germany’s transport minister (and progressive politician), Volker Wissing, last month vowed to ban driving on weekends to meet Germany’s climate-related goals. It’s either do that or else he wants the ruling coalition to pass more restrictions within the Climate Protection Act come July.   According to the German newspaper BILD, […]

Watch: Morano on Fox talks Biden’s access to ‘COVID-like powers’ if he declares a national ‘Climate Emergency’ – ‘Dictatorial Powers’

Fox Business – The Bottom Line w/ Dagen McDowell & Sean Duffy – Broadcast April 19, 2024

Sean Duffy: The White House told Fox Business that it is now considering declaring a national ‘climate emergency.’ If the President declares a climbing emergency, what impact would that have?

Marc Morano: This is the serious story of the day. NBC News has reported that if Joe Biden declared a national climate emergency, he would have COVID-like powers under that emergency and NBC also compared the climate emergency powers to the 911 emergency powers. The Center for Biological Diversity has estimated Joe Biden would get about 130 wartime-like powers by which to bypass democracy and impose the Green New Deal on America without a single vote of Congress. This is truly a  Halloween story, not a story for Earth Day. This is a truly frightening story, and he might just be desperate enough to declare it.

This is being widely reported in the media. The Biden White House is leaking this out. This might happen, and it is going to give Joe Biden these kind — you want to say the words dictatorial powers. He doesn’t need no stinking democracy to impose the Green New Deal if he does this.

CNN: ‘It’s time to limit how often we can travel abroad – ‘Carbon Passports’ may be the answer’ – ‘Drastic changes to our travel habits are inevitable’ – Suggests restrictions will be ‘forced’ upon public

CNN Travel:
“Holidaymakers should prepare to change their travel habits now, before this change is forced upon them.”

“The negative impacts of tourism on the environment have become so severe that some are suggesting drastic changes to our travel habits are inevitable. In a report from 2023 that analyzed the future of sustainable travel, tour operator Intrepid Travel proposed that “carbon passports” will soon become a reality if the tourism industry hopes to survive. …

What is a carbon passport? The idea of a carbon passport centers on each traveler being assigned a yearly carbon allowance that they cannot exceed. These allowances can then “ration” travel. … The average annual carbon footprint for a person in the US is 16 tons – one of the highest rates in the world. In the UK this figure sits at 11.7 tons, still more than five times the figure recommended by the Paris Agreement … the average global carbon footprint needs to drop to under two tons by 2050. This figure equates to around two roundtrip flights between London and New York.

Water! The World Economic Forum says Water is the next big crisis

Anti-Air Travel Climate Activists Want To Abolish Freedom Of Movement

The Federalist: Morano told The Federalist that climate fanatics aren’t actually after gas-powered vehicles —they’re after all privately owned vehicles. … Morano likened despotic climate policies, like eliminating gas stoves, banning meat, controlling thermostats, and only allowing people to obtain three items of clothing per year, to “medieval witchcraft.” He explained that these measures “will have no impact on global CO2 emissions.” … 

Climate policies are not about the climate — they are about power. “You can go back through history and see how times of crisis or perceived crises are used to consolidate power,” said Morano. Morano explained how moments in human history, like Rome’s descent from a republic to an empire, Hitler’s takeover of Germany, the post-9/11 surveillance apparatus, and the violation of civil liberties during Covid, were the result of fear in the wake of crises.  …

According to Morano, the ruling class — “the best educated, the government bureaucrats,  the billionaires, the heads of corporations, and even royal families” — use emergencies to assert their power over the populace. “It’s an impulse that’s as old as our humanity,” he said. “It’s the urge to rule over other people. It’s the idea that they know better. It’s arrogance.”  … 

“They give this illusion of climate consensus, the same way they give the illusion of consensus during Covid,” explained Morano. “If you deplatform, cancel, and censor the scientists who disagree, suddenly the only ones you hear are all in agreement.”
