PM Press has published my latest book, Against Doom: A Climate Insurgency Manual. Here is an excerpt from their web page:
“Before the election of Donald Trump the world was already speeding toward climate catastrophe. Now President Trump has jammed his foot on the global warming accelerator. Is there any way for the rest of us to put on the brakes?
Climate insurgency is a strategy for using people power to realize our common interest in protecting the climate. It uses mass, global, nonviolent action to challenge the legitimacy of public and corporate officials who are perpetrating climate destruction.
A global climate insurgency has already begun. It has the potential to halt and roll back Trump’s fossil fuel agenda and the global thrust toward climate destruction.
Against Doom: A Climate Insurgency Manual tells how to put that strategy into action—and how it can succeed. It is a handbook for halting global warming and restoring our climate—a how-to for climate insurgents.”
Please visit their web page to read more and purchase the book to learn how you can join the climate insurgency movement and help rehabilitate our environment.
Excerpt from Against Doom: A Climate Insurgency Manual
Here is an excerpt from the introduction of Against Doom to give you a glimpse of the most recent historical context that began the climate insurgency movement:
“Late in 2015, 195 countries signed the Paris Agreement acknowledging their individual and collective duty to protect the earth’s climate—and willfully refused to perform that duty. They unanimously agreed to the goal of keeping global warming “well below 2 degrees Celsius” and of pursuing efforts “to limit the increase in temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius.” But they did not agree to a single legally binding requirement about how, or how much, they would cut emissions. Consequently it is now up to the people of the world to halt climate destruction. Against Doom: A Climate Insurgency Manual tells how.
In response to climate destruction we are witnessing the birth of a global nonviolent constitutional insurgency. Global because the world order of climate destruction it seeks to change is global. Nonviolent because it relies on the power of the world’s people to withdraw our acquiescence and cooperation from those who are destroying our planet. Constitutional because it is based on the fundamental constitutional principle that the earth’s shared resources belong to the people and that governments have no authority to destroy them. Insurgency because it denies that established government authority is legitimate and asserts that its own actions are.”
