Bernie Sanders: What’s the Socialist Solution to the Climate Crisis?
The destruction of the environment is accelerating at breakneck speed. The Amazon is burning. California is ablaze. Glaciers are melting rapidly. According to a devastating UN report, there are only 10 years before the cataclysmic impacts of the climate crisis will begin to be felt more fully. Communities of color, working-class people, and the global poor have borne and will disproportionately bear the burdens of the climate crisis.
Enraged by the criminal inaction of governments and corporations the world over, millions, spearheaded by the youth, have been taking to the streets to demand change. But what will it take to change society? Reports have found that just 100 companies are responsible for 71% of global emissions since 1988. How can we defeat these powerful forces and mitigate the climate disaster? Bernie Sanders and AOC call for a Green New Deal—how can we win this? Join us for an important discussion on these questions and get involved!
