Do not think that you will escape the disasters
"Do not think that you will escape the disasters"

"Debater: We see the warnings and we know what needs to be done."

"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."

"the DEBATE. The disaster after the cyclone Idai is huge. The UN has called it probably the worst väderkatastrofen ever in the southern hemisphere. "

"From Mozambique talks about entire cities, the first cities, which wiped out as a result of climate change. "

"The reporting shows how human corpses thrown by the winds, and how they are left in the tree branches and from what was once the ceiling. The number of kill count already in the thousands, and millions of people are affected."

"No individual väderhändelse can with absolute certainty be linked to climate change, but the amount of disasters and the power of them is linked to how we burn the planet."

"There is no greater element of fairness in our time than the climate."

"What were the alarm bells are now full-scale disasters. We try to keep it away from us. When it is no longer possible to hide behind that it is something that will happen in an unknown future so the distance on the map our protection. It affects in all cases not us."

"We are one world. And although Sweden is better equipped for extreme weather events than south Africa so burned the drought in the summer also in the fields here. With more disasters, higher food prices, uncertain economy, a growing climate catastrophe hit here. The hardest strikes it towards someone who loses their job, makes it harder to get the month to join together, often already live in the greatest insecurity."

"Our children now go out on the streets and requires of us that we should act. We have warnings, we have requirements, we know what needs to be done. If we do not act now, what are we then?"

"Climate policy is specific reforms. Photovoltaic, biogas, fast trains, night trains to the continent, airport tax, bike paths. There are strong policy instruments. Climate change act, tax reform, environmental objectives. "

"IN the EUROPEAN elections is pushing the green Party to a binding carbon budget, which requires each EU country to reduce their emissions in accordance with a clear path on the way down to zero, and that means sanctions for the country that want to free ride on others."

"Climate policy is all of this, but it must also be something deeper. A questioning of the economy that pumps up the emissions. We need to seriously raise questions about how the economy in a world that takes down the emissions to zero. "

"It is, inter alia, to three basic choices:"

"► Justice instead of increasing disparities."

"the Gap between poor and rich, and between town and country, has grown in recent decades. A society being pulled apart is more difficult to cope with big changes. Where cooperation is required, there will be contradictions. Therefore, needed good rättvisepolitik. "

"Environmental policy can be part of the solution. We want to try shifting the balance of taxation where the revenues of environmental taxes give be distributed out to the citizens, most should go to the one that has the lowest income. We want to make climate-smart choices cheaper, than miljödåliga. You should not have to opt out of the train you can't afford. We want more of the profits from renewable energy, wind and hydro power, remain in the district in which it is produced. "

"► Small-scale, close to production instead of economies of scale and long-distance transport."

"Instead of big matindustrier, we need to buy more local food – also to the school and the home for the elderly. To manufacture our bilbränslen on the Swedish countryside instead of buying the oil, often from rogue states, providing more jobs here at home. "

"More digital solutions instead of tjänsteflyg. Fewer trucks across the continent, and more freight to shipping and rail."

"► Time for each other instead of increased consumption."

"There is no longer space for an ever-growing prylberg, and its traces of the plastic in the sea and elektronikskroten on Africa's beaches. More of the wealth should instead be taken out in time, for ourselves, each other and everything else that is important in life. "

"Requirements need to be imposed on undertakings as gadgets last longer, and can be recycled. People need to have more power over their working hours. There is no economically sound in a labour market that rips off people all the faster. We need to change it in the economy that wears both ourselves and the environment we share."

"this is not easy changes. They require omtänk. There is nothing you can do for yourself. It requires policy. But it is possible. Our societies have changed in the past, and it has happened quickly. "

"Change is what man does best. Now, we need to steer away from the emissions and destruction, towards a more sustainable way to work and live. It is possible. The option is there."
