Although scientists have been publishing on the viral consequences of deforestation for decades, Andreas Malm’s Corona, Climate, Chronic Emergency is the first publicly accessible book that connects pandemics, climate change, and capitalism. Even more ambitiously, Malm proposes a solution to end all three.

Faith that environmental catastrophe can best be avoided by technological gadgetry rather than a change in social relationships received a big shot in the arm with the May 2018 publication of Energy: A Human History by prolific author Richard Rhodes.

City in smoke

I agonized on what to title this short piece, designed to highlight the grave problems facing humanity. Is it too late to reverse the direction of global warming and the inevitable catastrophic effects of climate change, and all the other existential threats to the biosphere? In my opinion, the clock is near midnight, and a blunt assessment and recognition of what the people of the world are now facing, is way overdue. Are we productivist or anti-productivist?

Privatisation of waste

Environmental justice activism is to this age what the workers’ movement was for the industrial age - one of the most influential social movements of its time.

The Human Planet

Capitalism is front and center in this forthcoming book about the effects humans have had on the planet they inhabit. The authors, a geographer and a climate scientist, are not radicals, but their ambitious analysis of all of human history in these terms should play an important role in the ongoing debates over what is to blame and what is to do done. We eagerly await the book.
