Thesis on Climate Change

State of the Climate
is The Form, then The Elements are
the structures in the eco-system regulating the climate
– which are
either striving to hold the climate in its current state, or striving to push the climate into a new state. There are millions of examples of such structures, we will consider three: The rainforests which trap carbon dioxide, and the polar ice caps, which reflect heat from the sun back into space. The factor of increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the earths atmosphere is an element which is striving to push the state of the climate into a new state.
For hundreds of years, human activity has changed the nature of these elements. The concentration of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere has increased due to the use of coal and oil as fuel.
On the other hand, Rainforests have been cut down and have had their potential as carbon sinks weakened.
“Some sources claim that deforestation has already wiped out roughly 90% of West Africa's original forests" and on the other side of Africa "Ethiopia has lost 98% of its forested regions in the last 50 years...
“In South Asia, about 88% of the rainforests have been lost”…“In Central America, two-thirds of lowland tropical forests have been turned into pasture since 1950 and 40% of all the rainforests have been lost in the last 40 years” …”As of 2007, less. than 1% of Haiti's forests remained” Wikipedia article deforestation
The increased concentration of Carbon Dioxide has warmed the planet, and has melted huge areas of the polar ice caps, weakening their potential to reflect heat back into space.
The Elements which strive to hold the climate in its current state have been steadily weakened over the last few hundred years. But there were no obvious changes in the overall State of the Climate over this time period, because the elements which strove to hold it in its current state overpowered those which strove to change it.
As the elements change, they turn into their opposite, they become elements which strive to change the State of the Climate. As ice caps melt, dark seas emerge to replace them, which absorb heat into the earth rather than reflect it. As rainforests are wiped out, their potential to trap carbon is turned into its opposite: zero potential to trap carbon.
Dialectics teaches us how all things are connected and change over time - The form changes when the relationship between it’s elements change. The State of The Climate will change when the elements which strive to change the State of the Climate overpower those that strive to hold it in its current state.
Whenever a form changes, there is a period of phase transition. For long periods of time, as the dominant elements are being weakened, and the dominated elements are being strengthened, there is no apparent change to The Form. As the relationship between the elements shifts, as the dominant becomes dominated and the dominated becomes dominant we see symptoms of phase transition. I.e. as the structure of Water changes from Liquid to Gas, water begins to bubble in the period of phase transition.
Over the last decade, the symptoms of Climate Change have become more frequent and obvious. Thus the period we are living in now, in relation to the development of the Climate, is a period of phase transition between the current State of the Climate, and a new State of the Climate.
The nature of the new State of the Climate, whose emergence is being prepared for as we speak, cannot be predicted accurately. However, it is obvious that it will be different from what we have now and are comfortable with. Even a few degrees increase in temperature would devastate the world economy and human populations.
The possibility exists that the new State of the Climate could wipe out the human species completely.
The entire scientific community admits the reality of climate change and that the cause is human activity, but only Dialectics can show us just how near we are to experiencing this catastrophe.
Unfortunately, the capitalists, who control the media as well as scientific media, decided long ago that Dialectics could not help them, and thus it was banned from public display. They did this because Dialectics proves that the next form of society to emerge will come about through the overthrow of the capitalists.
Although the scientific community tried its best to warn society about climate change, it was impossible to do anything about it on the basis of Capitalism.
On the one hand, Capitalists did nothing to make their industries more environmentally friendly. They would rather continue to receive the entire value of their enormous profits, than reduce them to ensure the safety of the entire world's population. The capitalist system itself generates this decadent morality and it is impossible to expect anything more from these parasites. Every capitalist is in competition with other capitalists, and if one were to cut into his own profits, he would be ruined by his competition. The Capitalist resembles the captain of a sinking ship, who is unable to accept what is happening.
But If the Capitalists could not change, surely the governments would force them to? Unfortunately in capitalism, the governments are merely a part of the state machine, whose role is to legitimize and enforce the property relationship of wage-slavery - of the domination of the capitalists over the working class.
All the world's 'leaders' met in Copenhagen last year to make new resolutions on managing Climate Change. All the worlds 'leaders' at this noble conference were, for what seems like the first time in an eternity, united. They all chose not to make any cuts into the profits of their own national Capitalists. They were united in their inability to do anything whatsoever about the impending crisis which threatens the future of humanity, in the most technologically advanced period in the whole of human history, our great 'heroes of democracy' could not even agree to
and give our future a chance.
The Capitalists tried hard to make it seem like Climate change was everybody's fault and the solution was the responsibility of every individual. They encouraged us to buy environmentally friendly cars and solar power so as to reduce our 'carbon footprints'. If only we could buy ourselves out of this catastrophe, unfortunately the working class has been impoverished by wage slavery and cannot afford to pay for these ideal remedies.
The Solution to this problem is not the responsibility of every individual. Capitalists can do no good here whatsoever. The Working class and youth exclusively have the potential to be the solution, for the only event that can stop Climate Change is the Communist Revolution.
As wage slaves, the majority of the world's population are excluded from owning the means of production and are thus by definition, excluded from participating in decisions concerning production.
Under communism, when the entire population had a choice as to what sort of measures are implemented at
the source of production
, surely they will make sure that production, the basis of all society, is not paving the way for society's ruin.
Under Communism, the entire scientific world will be united, and will be given immeasurable recourses to develop the technology required to reverse the effects of Global Warming
Under Communism, the value of the products of every worker's labor will be returned to them in full, making all workers hundreds of times more wealthy and able to afford environmentally friendly options.
Under Communism, the world will share its recourses. All countries with rainforests will be able to stop clearing them to make way for farm land, as they will be given free food from countries like the USA instead.
If Capitalism continues to exist, the climate will change its state, and humanity may end.
We can choose to accept defeat, or we can rise to fulfill our historic mission of implementing the Dictatorship of the Proletariat. Rise to fulfill your heroic potential, join the Youth Dialectic in the fight for Communism.

Very nicely written, I'm sure that environmentalism will help catalyze future revolutions.
