What to do as the world burns?

Governments pay lip service, corporations make their public relations announcements greener, recycling has become a modern fetish, but for all this the earth is still headed for disaster. Between 2030 and 2050, to use just one metric, The World Health Organization predicts between 250,000 deaths per year caused by climate change, along with incalculable damage to the infrastructure of developing countries.

There's no simple solution, but the present moment is a chance to get out and get organized. Saturday April 29th marks this year's People's Climate March, a broad tent under which any and all who oppose climate policy governed by corporate interests can come out and make their voices heard. In solidarity with the March, we've created an environmentalist reading, including works from Derrick Jensen, Noam Chomsky, Ralph Nader, Stephanie McMillan, and other voices of resistance. We hope you enjoy!
