Bill Resnick interviews Jeremy Brecher, a writer and activist, who cofounded the Labor Network for Sustainability and wrote the book Climate Insurgency, a Strategy for Survival. It envisions mass global nonviolent action to force the mobilization of all resources as did the U.S. in World War II to reconstruct the economy and ways of life to restore the ecosystems upon which our lives depend. Bill and Jeremy discuss the great range of climate action organizations and efforts in this country, how these represent an embryo that might well develop into mass global non-violent action, and precedents for such a mass movement in the U.S., like the 60s Civil Rights insurgency and the labor movement of the 30s and 40s.
