This is the start of a further journey into Energy Economics, Greta Thunbergs Strike and the Climate rebellion has opened up a Pandora’s box which offers the opportunity to climb aboard of the Shoulders of Past Dissenters who did not quail and did not remain quiet in the face of Censorship and false narratives.
“A FIRE, A FIRE IS BURNING! I HEAR THE BOOT OF LUCIFER, I SEE HIS FILTHY FACE! AND IT IS MY FACE, AND YOURS, DANFORTH! FOR THEM THAT QUAIL TO BRING MEN OUT OF IGNORANCE, AS I HAVE QUAILED, AND AS YOU QUAIL NOW WHEN YOU KNOW IN ALL YOUR BLACK HEARTS THAT THIS BE FRAUD – GOD DAMNS OUR KIND ESPECIALLY, AND WE WILL BURN, WE WILL BURN TOGETHER!”

Ethics of voluntary offsets
Goodin (1994) has likened pollution permits to indulgences sold by the medieval
Catholic Church. These medieval moral sin offsets created a market whereby the
rich could pay professional pilgrims, prayers and penitents. This allowed relief
of the rich person’s conscience and less time in purgatory, without the need to
personally undertake arduous tasks or indeed stop sinning. The system replaced
personal action to address wrongdoing with a monetary transaction allowing
immoral actions to be justified. Sin would perversely increase because, for the
wealthy, indulgences provided a lower cost alternative to lengthy penances
(Ekelund et al. 1992). The analogy has also been applied to carbon offsets
(Monbiot 2006; Economist 2006). If regarded in the same way as indulgences then
GHG permits are a means of paying to undertake a wrongful act. Just as God was
the ultimate arbiter in the next life so the validity and effectiveness of GHG credits
is left for future generations to determine when they confront the impacts of
climate change and the originators of the harm have long since passed away.

Today’s find was ‘Between the Lines’ (2007) by the American artist Ariana Boussard-Reifel…completed in 2007, it is a book facing race and erasing racism head on, a text on white supremacy completely eviscerated by the artist, word by word.
‘It is a white supremacist text that I cut every word out of. Essentially imposing the doctrine of RAHOWA, colour-based segregation, on the book itself, I removed all the black from the white, rendering it meaningless as a consequence. It was part of a series that was a response to the rise in power of The World Church of the Creator, a vitriolic white supremacist group. Beneath the surface of this simple piece are layers of meaning. Superficially it is a cheaply printed paperback with the words removed. But with the additional knowledge that this book is a white supremacist bible and the words viciously and exactly describe the necessity…
