So what happened to the American orchestrated coup you kept telling us about?  The USA must be losing her touch if she can't overthrow a leader that can't even keep the lights on.  It almost looks like Guaido was fighting Maduro with nothing but his Venezuelan supporters.

The example of Venezuela is that when people believe, they can beat the capitalists.

That lesson is directly transportable to the climate crisis.

They didn't beat the capitalists.  The only thing that kept them going through the Chavez years was selling oil on the open market.  It is like China. They only survive by being inwardly communist and outwardly capitalist.  Without the capitalist system outside their countries, they would fall flat on their faces.  That is why Venezuela is doing so poorly now.  The oil money is not there like it was and they have no economy within their borders to sustain themselves.  

Is the lesson you speak of that we can reduce carbon output by starving ourselves, letting our infrastructure crumble and living in poverty?  If so, look no further than Venezuela.

You do know that nobody is going to watch a 38-minute dialog of Maduro blaming all Venezuelan woes on Amerika right?
