Ian Angus on the Anthropocene, A compilation of his work, March 28, 2016 with Introduction by John Foran

Gathered here are a series of short pieces by Canadian ecosocialist scholar-activist Ian Angus, editor of the online journal Climate & Capitalism of the book The Global Fight for Climate Justice (Fernwood, 2010)

His book, Facing the Anthropocene:  Fossil Capitalism and the Crisis of the Earth System is due out in September of this year.  Here’s what I wrote for the back cover of that book:

John Bellamy Foster,, June 6, 2016

One of the most important books of Marxist theory published in recent years is Marx’s Ecology: Materialism and Nature, in which John Bellamy Foster rediscovered and expanded on Marx’s understanding of the alienation of human beings from the natural world, crystallized in the concept of metabolic rift.

In a major development, the Green Party took a key step towards declaring itself Eco-socialist. The party’s National Committee voted Sunday night to approve a proposed amendment to the party’s platform entitled “Ecological Economics.” The proposed platform position declares that the Green Party is anti-capitalist and in favor of a decentralized vision socialism.

A fracturing of Canada’s social democratic party has opened as party members and much of its electoral base express their dissatisfaction with the conservative economic, social and environmental policies that predominate in the party’s decision-making echelons.

Dissension came to a head at the New Democratic Party’s national convention in Edmonton, Alberta April 8 to 10. Party leader Tom Mulcair was rebuked in a confidence vote on his continued leadership, failing to reach even fifty per cent support of the 2,800 delegates gathered.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Can we consider you a modern Marxist?

Herbert Docena, Transnational Institute, January 22, 2016

Corporate executives and climate skeptics that mobilise against strong international climate change agreements have rightly been the focus of attention of many people concerned about the climate crisis. But another group of elites—those who actually believe in climate change —may paradoxically have done more to block effective solutions to the crisis.

Daniel Tanuro, International Viewpoint, December 19, 2015

The COP21 Paris Climate Conference has, as expected, led to an agreement. It will come into effect from 2020 if it is ratified by 55 of the countries which are signatories to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and these 55 countries account for at least 55% of global emissions of greenhouse gases. In the light of the positions taken in Paris, this dual condition should not raise any difficulty (although the non-ratification of Kyoto by the United States shows that surprises are always possible).
