About this book

In this book, the authors offer a radical assessment of both the problem and the solution to the impending environmental catastrophe of climate change and biosphere destruction.

They argue the source of the ecological crisis lies in the paradox of wealth in a capitalist society which expands individual riches at the expense of public resource, including the wealth of nature. The solution, they suggest, is one of fundamental changes in social relations to transcend the ecological--and social--problems presently being faced.
