A lucid and rigorous demonstration that climate change cannot be overcome unless capitalism is overcome. The scourge of humanity is also the scourge of nature. This is a great achievement: putting forth the necessary contours of the direction that must be taken if we are to be equal to the greatest challenge ever faced by humankind. - Joel Kovel, author of The Enemy of Nature The climate crisis is at a critical moment while millions despair that no action is being taken. The difficulties our "world leaders" have in taking meaningful action do not spring out of nowhere but from their refusal to understand that this crisis is the consequence of the globalised, neoliberal economic system. This book argues that we cannot simply green our current society, but that we need a more thorough, more fundamental social transformation. - Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party of England and Wales An important contribution to outlining an ecosocialist project able to overcome the contradictions between a critique of capitalism and ecology. Daniel Tanuro demonstrates that climate change cannot be separated from the "normal" functioning of capitalism. He argues that it is therefore necessary to replace the logic of maximising profit with that of maximising common well-being within an environmental framework. The reading of this book should convince ecologists to become anti-capitalists. And vice-versa. - Michel Husson, an economist at the IRES Paris, author and global justice activist
