About this book

Are alternative energies and Green New Deals enough to deliver environmental justice? Peter Gelderloos argues that international governmental responses to the climate emergency are structurally incapable of solving the crisis. But there is hope.

Across the world, grassroots networks of local communities are working to realise their visions of an alternative revolutionary response to planetary destruction, often pitted against the new megaprojects promoted by greenwashed alternative energy infrastructures and the neocolonialist, technocratic policies that are the forerunners of the Green New Deal.

Gelderloos interviews food sovereignty activists in Venezuela, Indigenous communities reforesting their lands in Brazil and anarchists fighting biofuel plantations in Indonesia, looking at the battles that have cancelled airports, stopped pipelines, and helped the most marginalised to fight borders and environmental racism, to transform their cities, to win a dignified survival.

All author royalties go to Indigenous and anarchist initiatives in Brazil and Indonesia.

Media reviews

"Guides us beyond the greenwashing of the arsonist state, towards the regenerative agency of local communities. Gelderloos demonstrates how we have the means at hand to extinguish the blaze and reset our wayward course towards a more livable and just planet for all"
– Simon Springer, author of The Anarchist Roots of Geography

"Few books are as honest, inclusive and based on so much experience of committed social and ecological struggle. The Solutions Are Already Here opens doorways to a world so many young activists want to know and understand, and reminds so many more that now is the time to act"
– Dr. Alexander Dunlap, Centre for Development & the Environment, University of Oslo
