As the Anthropocene advances, humans around the red-green political spectrum search to appreciate and halt our deepening ecological difficulty. Environmentalists, scientists, and eco-socialists proportion matters in regards to the misuse and overuse of typical assets, yet usually fluctuate on causes and recommendations. a few blame environmental failures on overpopulation. Others ponder whether Darwin’s evolutionary theories disprove Marx’s progressive perspectives, or if capitalist background contradicts Anthropocene technological know-how. a few ask if all this fear approximately weather swap and the environment may perhaps result in a “catastrophism” that weakens efforts to heal the planet.
Ian Angus responds to those issues in A Redder colour of Green, with a clean, insightful readability, bringing socialist values to technology, and clinical rigor to socialism. He demanding situations not just mainstream eco-friendly inspiration, but additionally radicals who misuse or misrepresent environmental technology. Angus’s argument that confronting environmental destruction calls for either state-of-the-art clinical examine and a Marxist knowing of capitalism makes this e-book a necessary source within the struggle to avoid environmental destruction within the twenty first century.
