Ecosocialist Horizons Hour: Feb. 20th, 2013
Michael Dorsey ~
This week’s program focuses on climate change: we will investigate and analyze the latest climate science and the political economy of our brave new era of ecological chaos. This chaos threatens to fundamentally destroy human civilization, and yet the governments of the world seem determined to stay the course of planetary suicide. Why? To answer this question, we will be joined this week by Wesleyan professor and cosmopolitan agitator, Michael Dorsey. Dorsey has been on the front lines of the politics of climate change for over three decades. He has won awards from elite organizations like Rotary International and the Ford Foundation, but has also earned the trust of rebellious social movement activists all over the world. Dorsey has served behind enemy lines on the teams and councils of multiple US presidents and sat on the boards of major NGOs and at the negotiation tables of the United Nations. A veteran of countless international conferences on climate change and environmental policy, he will unravel for us the dirty truth behind the scenes of international climate policy negotiations, both in government and “civil society.” He will point the only way forward for climate justice: a global revolutionary ecosocialist uprising.
