Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Into the streets, into the squares, into the mines: Escalating the climate fight.


You need to desist from burning fossil fuels. As long as you continue burning fossil fuels, adding more CO2 to the atmosphere, it doesn't matter how many wind turbines and solar PVs you build. That fundamental transition entails a liquidation of a whole department of capital accumulation - making profit from the production of fossil fuels. And nowhere in the world do we see, as yet, any initiative to accomplish such a liquidation.

Social ecologist Andreas Malm on the failures of environmental pacifism, the urgent need to destroy capital's carbon infrastructure, and his book How to Blow Up a Pipeline: Learning to Fight in a World on Fire from Verso.
