Watched Leonado DeCaprisun's new thing "before the Flood" which was predictably a pile of shit - leo plays a gormless keanu reaves who stares at his feet looking sad while orbiting round a giant elephant with capitalism written on the side which everyone ignores.

Highlight was when he was talking to a woman in india as she was all "pigdog americans use up 62x more energy than us and you're not doing shit to reduce that, china are way better than you and leading the world in renewables, you tell people what to do and dont do shit, fucking hypocrites *spits*" (paraphrased) and poor ol leo bumbles out "i dont think that americans are going to reduce their consumption, whell just have to hope for a miracle new technology to save us" and then she just rolls her eyes.

it ends by saying that if we all just took fewer showers and ate more home grown vegetables everything will be ok (i guess, didnt actually watch the end)

Thank you Leo for that. Republican climate change deniers will finally come to their senses after they sit down for an hour and listen to a rich democrat celebrity lecture them. Wealthy liberals will nod a long and pat themselves on their back for buying a tesla and shopping at the farmer's market. Poor liberals will continue to buy industrial chicken breasts, drive to work, and get the latest apple products -- but that's okay because they offset all the bad shit when they vote democrat (hell, they even voted for Bernie).
Meanwhile Leo just flew from LA to NYC to meet his real estate consultant that he keeps on retainer. Leo is very concerned about the climate, ("has you partner, Mr. gigglestein, seen my documentary yet? It's very important stuff I'm talking about. I know you have Jerry, that's why I like you, you've seen all my passion projects") so Leo wants to find a place where he can move to when things go bad. Leo is in luck because Jerry has been in meetings all year with developers that are building compounds in New Zealand for wealthy individuals that have the exact same concern as Leo. Leo is relieved.

But what Leo doesn't know is that he and Jerry are going to be lined up on the same wall.

Antarctica losing lots of ice. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-38256932

That will make it easier to drill and mine down there, though, which is good news for America's Interests In The Region

this sucks

look on the bright side, at least we'll finally get to see the ancient antarctic pyramids

Apparently Bill Gates and a bunch of super-wealthy individuals are creating a fund to combat climate change. Thanks guys. Can't way to hear from stupid fucking nerds how they don't need to reduce their consumption because Gates and Musk are gonna fix it global warming so it's all good. Fuck you nerds. Stupid fat fucking nerds. God damn do I EVER HATE NERDS HOLY FUCK.

Bill Gates at press conference in 2030:
"After spending 1 billion dollars our team of hardworking scientists and engineers have created a device which can convert CO2 into marijuana flavored lollipops. Unfortunately the facility is under water and no longer functional. Also the whole world is at war. And every single person that the Gates foundation helped in Africa died an incredibly slow agonizing death due starvation. I tried my best -- thank you for your support. what a wild ride that was"

I was just looking into his Ecology Against Capitalism after some Ecopsychology stuff.

I think this kind of stuff is a good gateway from ecohippie to marx

I read "Fields that conceptulize reality relationally and use relational methods offer the kind of nonmainstream approaches that must be addopted by ecopsychology if it to be a psychology of interrelationship" and instantly went into sleep mode
