Proletarian Ecology: Environmental Politics Beyond the Professional Class

Proletarian Ecology: Environmental Politics Beyond the Professional Class

The climate crisis is dire and there’s little time to address it. Solving it will require a mass movement to confront some of the most powerful corporations in world history. Yet, the environmental movement – as currently constituted – is not well positioned to win this kind of transformative change. In his talk, Matt critically examines the narrow class base of environmentalism in the professional classes (e.g., scientists, academics, journalists). He argues for a broader working class environmental politics, or a proletarian ecology, that appeals to the majority of society struggling in an age of unprecedented inequality and economic insecurity.

 

Matthew T Huber, Associate Professor of Geography at Syracuse University. He is the author of Lifeblood: Oil, Freedom and the Forces of Capital (University of Minnesota Press, 2013).
