Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It isn't about the nukes. It's about not even believing in what you advocate.

Straight up: Do you believe renewable can support an industrial society? Then stop going on about the need for zero growth. Because if renewable can support an industrial society, they can support a much richer planet than the current one - There are billions in abject poverty right now, so saying "the world is rich enough, we dont need more growth" is just vilely racist and amoral.

If you don't believe renewables can support a richer planet, you need to abandon your advocacy for them, because you don't mean it - not in your bones. And you are doing the the cause harm, because the arguments that are being constructed from that basis really do just imply a mountain of skulls too large for me to visualize, and I have really good visual imagination.
