White Skin, Black Fuel


In recent years, the far right has done everything in its power to accelerate global heating. The American president believes it is a hoax and has removed limits on fossil fuel production. The Brazilian president has opened the Amazon and watched it burn. In Europe, parties denying the crisis and insisting on maximum combustion have stormed into office, from Sweden to Spain. On the brink of breakdown, the forces most aggressively promoting business-as-usual have surged—always in defence of white privilege, against supposed threats from non-white others. Where have they come from? In the first study of the far right in the climate crisis, ‘White Skin, Black Fuel’ presents an eye-opening sweep of a novel political constellation, and reveals its deep historical roots. Fossil-fuelled technologies were born steeped in racism. None loved them more passionately than the classical fascists. Now right-wing forces have risen to the surface, professing to have the solution—closing borders to save the climate. Epic and riveting, ‘White Skin, Black Fuel’ traces a future of political fronts that can only heat up.
