The environmental movement and the concept of a “Just Transition”

Here, Michael Ware and Joost Kricz make a compelling case why the climate justice movement should re-appropriate the language of “Just Transition” for a more radical confrontation with capitalism. Ware presents four versions of Just Transition, argues that first three most commonly expressed are woefully lacking in critical content, and only a concept of transition tied to an ecosocialist vision can adequately respond to the challenge. An excellent theoretical and pragmatic discussion of ecosocialism. Listen to it!

“Green capitalism’s market-driven solutions to the climate crisis have failed, opening up the question of how we can realistically transition to renewable energy and a society that doesn’t rely on endless growth. We need social justice, democratic planning and energy democracy now. So how can we pose this alternative in a neoliberal world built on fossil fuels?”
