The Big Question for the Climate Movement: Ready to be a Justice Movement?

The IPCC Report released last week brought the catastrophe climate timeline crashing down on us. In short, the IPCC report stated we have 15 years to make an intensive push to slash greenhouse gas emissions. Failing to do that, we will exceed the warming threshold of 2 degrees Celsius within decades, bringing serious risks of ice sheet collapse, a rapid surge in sea levels, agricultural failure, forest die offs and mass extinctions. That’s the grim reality we face if our hands remain tied by the political status quo. On the other hand, facing the reality of our future needn’t be terrifying IF we are prepared to cast off business as usual and do the right thing.
Transformative solutions are indeed within our reach – such as the Emergency Green New Deal. This would take us to 100% clean renewable energy by 2030 (See Harvey Wasserman article below.) Doing so means abandoning the toxic principles of infinite growth, endless resource utilization, and the mindless pursuit of profits as the holy grail of economic activity. The obsolete get-rich-quick economic model must be replaced by a new model of economic democracy that upholds the sanctity of both human rights and the ecosystems on which all life, and wealth, depends.
In order to motivate real solutions, an honest discussion of the perils we face is essential. (See Steve Breyman’s article below.) That needn’t be frightening, if we commit to transformational solutions as big as the crisis barreling down on us. What is truly frightening is being locked in the clutches of the ecosidal, suicidal status quo. It’s the stranglehold of a predatory oligarchy, now firmly in control of the US economy and government, that must be both feared and resisted, in order to unleash the real solutions within our reach. This is why the movement for justice that’s sweeping the globe is so timely and essential. With the climate as the crisis that brings us together, we can build a unified global justice movement to claim the future we deserve. Join us this Earth Day to May Day for 10 days of action for People, Planet and Peace over Profit. Then stay tuned for more to come!
