Titel: Climate insurgency (hardcover)
Sub titel: A Strategy for Survival
Twenty-five years of human effort have failed even to slow climate change, let alone reverse it. Climate Insurgency lays out a strategy for protecting the earth's climate: a global non-violent constitutional insurgency. This short book starts with a brief history of official climate protection efforts 'from above' and non-governmental ones 'from below' that explains why climate protection has failed so far. After this appraisal of where we have gone wrong, the author proposes a global non-violent insurgency for climate protection to overcome that failure. Historian and long-time activist Jeremy Brecher presents a public trust doctrine that can legitimate global climate insurgency in national and international law. He shows how to make national economies climate-safe and points the way toward justly distributing the global costs and benefits of climate protection. 'Climate Insurgency' concludes with the laying out of a new strategy to make governments and economies meet their obligations to protect the climate, and our collective future. Certainly the price of this book is so absurd that the revolution from below won't come from reading this book.
