Summary

A decade and a half after the Kyoto Protocol was blocked by the United States'¬" refusal to sign, the global effort to halt climate change is stalled, while the climate crisis only worsens. Recent world conventions in Copenhagen and Cancun only increased the sense that current proposals to reverse global warming are hopelessly compromised by the attempt to apply corporate and market-based solutions to this massive global problem. This stirring book sets forth an alternative vision for achieving climate justice'¬ ;and ultimately, for halting the ongoing destruction of what its author famously calls '¬SPachamama,'¬ Mother Earth. The book identifies the causes, progress, and effects of climate change, making clear why planet earth is imperiled'¬ ;and where the true roots of the crisis reach. The book outlines a substantive program to end the climate crisis, combining the personal vision of Evo Morales with the pioneering analysis and work of the global social movements that are fueling an impassioned worldwide drive for a new approach to the capitalist and imperialist-dominated Kyoto regime.
