Join Revolution Books in a discussion of the Special Issue of Revolution on the Environment.This special issue of Revolution focuses on the environmental emergency that now faces humanity and earth's ecosystems. This emergency has many dimensions:

* the destruction and fragmentation of forests and other natural habitats, making the survival of many species of plants and animals impossible;
* the acidification, degradation and spreading of dead zones (areas in which there is no life) in oceans;
* a great extinction (wiping out) of species on the lands, lakes and rivers, and in the seas;
* large-scale pollution and degradation of water, air and soils;
* and now, the real threat of unstoppable climate change.


Come to the discussion. Read this issue. Engage it. Use it as a powerful tool to awaken people and spread the word. Get it out far and wide-taking it into classrooms and into the streets and communities. Take it to those places where people are fighting the power against these crimes, and spread it as you unite with their struggle. Organize discussions of it. Get into forums and round tables with scientists, activists, and others. Let us know what you think of it, and what others think of it. And as you do all this, check out and get with the movement for revolution that we are building.

The environment and human destiny itself is being taken to the brink of disaster.

All this because of the dictates of this system—because of its stranglehold on humanity. All this while technology and wealth exist on a scale and in forms never before imagined—technology and wealth produced by millions, billions, throughout the world who are nameless and faceless to the powers that be—technology and wealth that could and should be a resource belonging to humanity as a whole and used to meet the needs of people everywhere for a decent and ever-enriched material, intellectual and cultural life.
