China may yet debunk the thesis of this thread. This article, although a typical racist screed and lowkey hagiography about the White Man (Obama) englightening the Oriental (Xi Jinping) about climate change, shows along with several others I've read that China is leading the way in the fight through concrete useful praxis. And with its Socialist Economy with Careful Capitalist Characteristics it actually has a chance at success. It seems that the ICE (or FIRE) may not be coming after all and I, like tears, am somewhat disappointed.

Energy is an essential part of American life and a staple of the world economy. The Trump Administration is committed to energy policies that lower costs for hardworking Americans and maximize the use of American resources, freeing us from dependence on foreign oil.
For too long, we’ve been held back by burdensome regulations on our energy industry. President Trump is committed to eliminating harmful and unnecessary policies such as the Climate Action Plan and the Waters of the U.S. rule. Lifting these restrictions will greatly help American workers, increasing wages by more than $30 billion over the next 7 years.
Sound energy policy begins with the recognition that we have vast untapped domestic energy reserves right here in America. The Trump Administration will embrace the shale oil and gas revolution to bring jobs and prosperity to millions of Americans. We must take advantage of the estimated $50 trillion in untapped shale, oil, and natural gas reserves, especially those on federal lands that the American people own. We will use the revenues from energy production to rebuild our roads, schools, bridges and public infrastructure. Less expensive energy will be a big boost to American agriculture, as well.
The Trump Administration is also committed to clean coal technology, and to reviving America’s coal industry, which has been hurting for too long.
In addition to being good for our economy, boosting domestic energy production is in America’s national security interest. President Trump is committed to achieving energy independence from the OPEC cartel and any nations hostile to our interests. At the same time, we will work with our Gulf allies to develop a positive energy relationship as part of our anti-terrorism strategy.
Lastly, our need for energy must go hand-in-hand with responsible stewardship of the environment. Protecting clean air and clean water, conserving our natural habitats, and preserving our natural reserves and resources will remain a high priority. President Trump will refocus the EPA on its essential mission of protecting our air and water.
A brighter future depends on energy policies that stimulate our economy, ensure our security, and protect our health. Under the Trump Administration’s energy policies, that future can become a reality.
when i'm strangling another dehydrated wastelander for a plastic bottle full of life-giving urine i will miss people staking their irrevocable claim on a shoveled out parking spot with cardboard boxes and lawn furniture.
*extremly interested voice* pls elaborate that last bit please
the Wikipedia page refers weirdly to this project in the past tense but planning is still going on. like i said though, it's far from a certainty and right now it's being pushed as makework for NA/European production but I suspect if it moves forward seriously china will become directly involved through investment
all it takes is one depression and you got manufacturers all over the world that support green energy going under. and now you have a time limit for the industries to recover since the lifespan of solar and wind is only twenty years without support. and that's an optimistic estimate. with more extreme weather incoming you'll see turbines and panels get fucked up pretty quick.
lol jesus christ we're so fucked
My current crazy unfounded suspicion is that after a few years of massive logging, especially in the Americas, a petroleum distribution crisis will cause unrestrained tree death as the remaining ones are cut for fuel. Tree catastrophe 2021, I'll bet $150 on it
not if they all burn down 1st
