Ecosocialist Horizons Hour: April 24th, 2013
This evening Joel Kovel and Ben Barson will take up a problem of the greatest urgency: how to break the back of the fossil fuel industry through the development of renewable alternatives, chiefly by utilization of the endless energy from the Sun.
This is part one of a two part series with Ecosocialist Horizons associate David Schwartzman. Calling in live from Washington, DC, David Schwartzman is an eminent geochemist, recently retired from Howard University, and in our view one of the leading authorities in the world on this subject. Here he combines his scientific expertise with ecosocialist politics, in his doctrine of “Solar Communism.” David participated in the second Ecosocialist Convergence, and has for years been a leading advocate of ecosocialist politics and organizing. Also active with the DC Greens, David Schwartzman puts the lie to the myth that science and humanistic values don’t mix.
