We need a mass movement to ensure a just transition and prevent climate breakdown. But such contestations can go very wrong.

The people in power are not acting on climate breakdown. Which presents us, those not in power, with three options. We change the actions of those in power, we change the people in power or we change the nature of power itself.

In its sixth annual audit, Oceana says fewer than one third of wild marine fish stocks in Canada are considered healthy and most critically depleted stocks lack plans to rebuild them.

Good basic analysis applicable to many other places in the US and Canada. Needs to be expanded to include the union movement's centrality in what should be a combined progressive fightback against attacks on working class rights on and off the job, climate disruption, shrinking healthcare, homelessness, imperialism, war-mongering, racism, sexist-heterosexist oppression, etc.--all of which issues fascists actively support.
