In The Shock Doctrine, Naomi Klein quotes notorious neocon economist Milton Friedman as saying that when disaster strikes, politicians grasp whatever ideas are laying around, so it is important to have those ideas out there. That's another reason it's important to be prepared for Climate Crisis disasters.
Which means that the alternative paradigm needs to be established in people's minds long before disaster strikes. That's why the ideological situation we've been in for the past 15-20 years, where there is effectively just one discourse, is dangerous.
