RIGHT YES #ECOSOCIALISM STUFF
I haven't forgotten, just a lot of (good but time-consuming) stuff came up.
But we're back! And today we're exploring 🌳🌲TERRESTRIAL CARBON SEQUESTRATION! 🌳🌲Woooo~~ (1/?)
SO! We want to sequester CO2 in the most stable forms possible; short-lived plants uptake CO2 but die & decompose that year and release most of it back into the atmosphere again. So we're looking for more stable repositories for terrestrial CO2; woody trees & the soil itself. 2/?
Honestly terrestrial sequestration (henceforth TS) is promising because we already have the tech (trees & plants). We don't need fancy techbro solutions, we just need to regrow our forests/plains/wetlands and engage in regenerative agriculture. 3/?

I have 2 essays about #ecoapartheid in Brazil this week. 1st is about Bolsonaro’s menace to Amazon (& most Brazilians), esp the insidious threat of low-carbon #ecoapartheid, where fumbling climate progress and racial violence go together dissentmagazine.org/online_article… Thread 1/
Then there’s this piece about São Paulo’s historic drought, which could return. I push back against the optimism that lots of progressives have that climate disasters will solve their problems by teaching ppl a lesson. Don't believe it ijurr.org/spotlight-on-o… 2/
Really excited that this water piece is in a @ijurrresearch "Parched Cities" collection, also feat. the brilliant @liquidperson, @maliniranga, @suraya_scheba, @nate_millington, Megan Peloso, @disrumpere, Leila M. Harris. Edited by @lizaweinstein ijurr.org/spotlight-on-o… 3/

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
