Climate Activists Demand ‘WWII-Style Climate Mobilization’ – ‘Converting a large portion of U.S. military intoa climate mobilization force’

All of that will require a national reallocation of resources among sectors of production, one that diverts a significant share of a necessarily declining resource budget into building green infrastructure and leaves the consumer economy a lot less to work with.
