Socialist Night School - Capital and Climate Change

Start: Wednesday, August 30, 2023 7:00 PM

End: Wednesday, August 30, 2023 8:30 PM

Hello comrades, join us for the next installment of our ongoing Socialist Night School one-shot classes! As always these classes are open to everyone, so if you know anyone that might be interested, be sure and let them know.

Our August class will explore how capital and the Anthropocene extinction are fundamentally inseparable. The class will include two reading discussions on capital's relationship to ecological catastrophes and a socialist framework for a path to sustainable energy. We will also provide up-to-date science on the current extent of climate change and habitat destruction. Readings can be found in the links below, I hope to see you there!

Reading 1 - "Socialist Politics and the Electricity Grid" by Matt T. Huber & Fred Stafford (from the Catalyst)

Reading 2 - An excerpt from "The Enemy of Nature" by Joel Kovel
