Stupid movement. Redistributing wealth doesn't reduce emissions because the poor will spend the money just as the rich; only they can't afford EVs.

As I've said, the two most viable ways to reduce emissions are:

1. Reduce population
2. Reduce wealth (for everyone)

I suppose redistribution of wealth actually accomplishes #2, because countries that do this are among the poorest in the world.

It's great that places like France exist, so that we can feel fortunate we don't have to live there.
