A CATASTROPHIC INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

Posted on: July 12, 2021

Climate change is framed as a global issue such that the whole world must cooperate and participate in the essential matter of reducing global fossil fuel emissions to zero before we get to the critical temperature of 1.5C above pre-industrial. This end of global warming by way of global climate action against global fossil fuel emissions is the ultimate goal of the climate change movement against fossil fuels.

Yet, the Industrial Revolution is a creation of the Global North and the climate change movement against fossil fuels is also a creation of the Global North wherein the Global North admits that globally destructive climate change is a creation of the Industrial Revolution done wrong by the Global North and that to correct this wrong they must rewind and do it right by using renewable energy instead of fossil fuels to fuel the Industrial Revolution.

Therefore, the unresolved and confounding complexities of the failed global climate action movement against climate change is best understood in the context of the Industrial Revolution that created two very different worlds on earth as the Global North of the rich industrialized nations and the Global South of the poor third world countries and the former colonies of the Global North.

The anthropogenic global warming and climate change movement of our time is therefore the hindsight of the Global North’and their confession that their fossil fueled Industrial Revolution had been done all wrong because of the use of fossil fuels. Their position on this issue is therefore that “We, the Global North, did the Industrial Revolution all wrong and so we must rewind and do it right“. This argument and its logical implications have no relevance for the Global South.

There is no context for the Global South in the foundational climate movement proposition that “we did the industrial revolution all wrong and we must rewind and do it right”. The Global South did not do the Industrial Revolution. That climate evil that gave us the climate catastrophe of our time is a creation of the Global North and only of the Global North. The climate crisis created by fossil fuels and the climate crisis movement against fossil fuels are both creations of the Global North and they are relevant only to the Global North in terms of the context of rewind and do the Industrial Revolution correctly. The Industrial Revolution is a creation of the Global North and their love hate relationship with it can only be understood in that context such that it has no relevance to the Global South.

Therefore, although climate change is a global issue, its cause and the need for climate action as stated in AGW science can only be understood as a Global North issue. If the Global North needs to cut emissions in the Global South it must do so at no cost or hardship to be borne by the Global South because the Global South was not involved in the Industrial Revolution that created the climate crisis. In addition, if the Global North admits that they screwed up their Industrial Revolution and caused Global Harm, they must pay the appropriate compensation to the Global South and provide full funding for any climate action that needs to be taken by the Global South. For a start they must stop using their former colonies as pitiful victims of climate change to sell their climate agenda.

HOW THE CLIMATE MOVEMENT USES THE POOR TO SELL THEIR CLIMATE ACTION AGENDA

HOW THE CLIMATE MOVEMENT USES THE POOR TO SELL THEIR CLIMATE ACTION AGENDA

THE IMPOSITION OF CLIMATE ACTION ON THE GLOBAL SOUTH IS THE OLD RACIST COLONIALISM VIEW THAT THE GLOBAL SOUTH MUST ULTIMATELY SERVE THE NEEDS OF THE GLOBAL NORTH.
