Following the Paris Climate Summit, hope surged in some quarters while realism dawned in others. In just the time since this book was first published, the Earth has seen the hottest year on record accompanied by myriad natural and man-made disasters closely related to climate change. Climate Insurgency lays out a strategy for protecting the earth's climate: a global nonviolent constitutional insurgency. This compact book starts with a brief history of official climate protection efforts "from above" and non-governmental ones "from below" that explains why climate protection has failed so far. Then, it proposes a global nonviolent insurgency for climate protection to overcome that failure. Historian and longtime activist Jeremy Brecher presents a public trust doctrine that can legitimate global climate insurgency in national and international law. He shows how to make national economies climate-safe and points the way toward justly distributing the global costs and benefits of climate protection. In addition, he lays out a new strategy to make governments and economies meet their obligations to protect the climate-especially following the Paris Climate Summit which betrayed the peoples of the world and their global environmental trust.
