Climate change is increasing the frequency and intensity of “super storms” like the ones that devastated Houston, Puerto Rico, and Bangladesh last summer. These and other extreme weather events serve as signs of more severe and far-reaching climate and ecological destabilization. While capitalism sets the conditions for the onset of natural disasters it also shapes the human-made disasters that follow in their aftermath – what Naomi Klein has called “disaster capitalism.” This session will explore a socialist response to ecological disaster that can be a part of the struggle for a revolutionary transformation of society.
