Political economist, historian, and co-founder of the Democracy Collaborative Gar Alperovitz, along with senior fellow at the Democracy Collaborative and executive director of the Next System Project Joe Guinan and the Democracy Collaborative’s director of research Thomas Hanna make a bold new statement about climate change in this article for The Nation. Gone are the days to debate and over talk the environmental issue. We are on the verge of true disaster, and, therefore, we need to make massive strides toward finding a solution. Alperovitz, Guinan, and Hanna outline one such possible strategic action to take: buy out the fossil fuel companies behind the crisis.
We’re running out of time on climate change. As Donald Trump and Big Oil’s other friends in Washington do their utmost to keep global temperatures climbing, our window for preserving civilization is closing fast.
