CAPITALISM AND THE CLIMATE CRISIS: Everything to Lose and a World to Win
The climate crisis is already here, and every year it is getting worse. The politicians make their promises and their pledges, but in reality they do next to nothing to address this emergency. Biden promised “bold action to save the planet,” but he has actually opened up more federal lands to fossil fuel extraction than Trump, and U.S. oil production has only increased under his administration. In the end, it is their defense of the capitalist system that prevents politicians from putting an end to burning fossil fuels. We cannot rely on them to bring about the changes we need.
The future is up to us, the vast majority of humanity. In order to carry out the necessary steps to address the climate emergency, the capitalist system has to go. There is another future waiting for us, but we have no time to lose to bring it about.
Join us for a presentation and discussion on what it will take to address the climate crisis and build a world that no longer relies on fossil fuels, and is not based on the destruction of the planet.
We will have in-person meetings for this event in the following places in the Bay Area and Baltimore.
