[Video] Fighting Climate Change: Why We Need a Workers’ Government

Tom Trottier, editor of Socialist Revolution, speaks on climate change and the class struggle at the NYC Marxist School 2019. We must view the vital question of climate change as a class issue, connected with many other problems facing the working class. Just one hundred big companies are responsible for more than 70% of greenhouse gas emissions. Expropriating the key levers of industry would put extraordinary resources at the disposal of humanity, allowing the working class to rationally plan the economy to mitigate climate change. Such policies, carried out by a workers’ government, are the only way to effectively combat climate change, the first real steps towards a socialist society.
