Six Theses on Saving the Planet book
Typical green economy proposals or “degrowth” strategies will prove insufficient to save the planet from global ecological collapse. The only way to save the planet is to replace capitalism with “global eco-socialist democracy.” Such a system is based on six theses: substantial cuts in fossil fuel consumption; a “dignified” and sustainable living standard for all; production of goods that are more rebuildable, recyclable, and shareable; investments in public needs, including renewable energy, infrastructure, and public education; systemic approaches to managing waste and toxics; and assurances of quality jobs for displaced workers.
