Presentation and discussion based on the special issue of Revolution
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.

These environmental problems affect each other, and are already causing certain ecosystems—the complex webs of interacting and interrelating life—to collapse.

But we can do something. People are acting on this now—they are sounding the alarm, they are demonstrating, they are resisting with real determination, they are doing important research, they are thinking through alternate ways of doing things, and they are carrying forward important projects.
These actions are crucial. But ultimately our actions must actually correspond to a true understanding of the causes of the problem, and to the real solution to it.
We'll discuss:

the dimensions of the emergency...
the source of its causes in the capitalist system, and the impossibility of that system solving this crisis...
a way out and way forward for humanity—a revolutionary society in which we could actually live as custodians of nature, rather than as its plunderers.

The action—and the inaction—of those who rule this system in pursuit of accumulating more and more profit is devastating the Earth. It is up to us to change the whole system through a liberating revolution.
