In which I revisit unsustainable ‘green’ energy, this time looking the project of harvesting our trash out of the oceans, but also the materials for not so renewable energy. I then cover how any good of electric cars are made moot by over supply of Suvs and trucks (its what makes more money) And explore how renewables alone can’t solve the problem, but press the reality that moving away from capitalism is the only ways to fix these collective problems, as markets and liberal republicanism over-sells and under delivers. The case today rests on the need for passive ecological systems and not money making active ones.
