We Can’t ‘Just Stop’ Fossil Fuels. People Would Riot

Scenes from the recent Kazakh protests, caused by many things, but triggered by fossil fuel prices

If you cut off fossil fuels, people will not be quiet. They’ll fucking riot. Look at Kazakhsatan now. Look to Myanmar or France in the past. In Sri Lanka our cooking gas cylinders have been exploding, forcing people onto renewables (firewood). This is good for the climate I guess, but we’re fucking pissed.
