A “Green New Deal” to combat climate change has gone from a vague slogan, used even by centrists, to an increasingly concrete and popular demand. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s House resolution, although still preliminary, audaciously combines climate adaptation with more traditional socialist goals of full employment, social housing, and empowering workers on the shop floor. However, the political path forward to addressing the climate crisis is still far from clear. In this session of Socialist Night School, we’ll read Kate Aronoff’s in-depth analysis of the policy and politics of a Green New Deal, and how it might transform the lives of future generations; and, closer to our frightening present, influential urban theorist Mike Davis on the social impact of the catastrophic Camp Fire on two California towns: working-class Paradise and wealthy, suburban Malibu.
