Meredith Tax argues that a socialist foreign policy must address climate change, globalism, neofascism, and a new paradigm for social justice.

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.

We eagerly await the book.

The most prominent global conference on climate change – the UNFCCC 23rd Annual Conference of Parties meeting – recently closed with much fanfare, talk of success and ‘being on track’.  There was little to indicate that any significant headway had been made to curb the predicted catastrophic levels of global warming however.
