And now looking at the and the growing urgency of all this.. look at _all_ the distribution systems. Want to stop coal generation? Monitor coal plants, find out how they physically get lignite, block the roads on delivery day, or block the trucks at the dock from offloading lignite. Stop peat? Do they lock away the harvesters on weekends? Block / chain / weld the gates. Stop the activity at the choke-point. Rebellions organise.

I once noticed a fuel distribution centre for Shell/Topaz/CircleK in Clonakilty, and wondered why protestors don't think critically about the centralisation of the infrastructure they're protesting. At the time, people were protesting Shell/etc by blocking filling-stations with placards. But if you mapped out their distribution network, I'm sure there'd be only 5-10 distro centres to block the entire network. Come out at night, weld those gates shut!

I think the goal of the ETS scheme was to initially start handing out willy-nilly but then to encourage carbon-sequestering industries to apply as issuers of Credits, and create a cash flow directly from polluters to antipolluters. If so, then driving up the price by buying-and-sequestering CCs ought to lead to more money going to antipolluters. But the share being issued by the EU themselves; is it ringfenced into something beneficial?
