transition from fossil capitalism to solar commoning
I am a petroleum economist who has worked on stopping oil to Apartheid South Africa and am now committed to action to keep fossil fuels in the ground as one part of the global struggle to get out of capitalist relations and spread commoning throughout the world.
Reasons for working in this topic, project or business:
It is necessary to support all life.
Root causes of the problems in this field and main barriers:
Capitalist relations that deliver violence and death, notably as manifest in the climate crisis.
What is needed to overcome barriers to implement solutions:
Key to making a recommoning initiative successful is the dissemination of as mind set that the most marginalized and despised under capitalist relations - the indigenous woman and woman of color - are both most motivated and most competent to elaborate commoning. This means pursuing initiatives by such women and supporting their campaigns (our campaigns) in every way possible.
Specific needs and/or support requests:
Others and espercially so-called white people and amongst them, men; need to understand that the campaigns of indigenous women (select not all) and women of color along with their allies amongst poor white women are campaigns that have the potential to save life and the Earth and get behind these initiatives.
Suggested best local solution for this topic:
Solutions focus on keeping fossil fuels in the ground, and secondarily, breaking up the infrastructure of fossil capitalism while simultaneously elaborating commoning ways of doing things.
Business is the problem not the solution. Let us prioritize action that is intended to support and defend life, not profit.
