Bill Resnick talks to Jeremey Brecher who wrote the book Climate Insurgency, a Strategy for Survival. Brecher begins by noting that the economies of major nations continue to increase their greenhouse gas emissions with no credible plan to reduce them. Then Brecher delivers the good news: the growing action from below, by cities, schools, churches, unions, businesses, through climate action movements and programs for alternative energy production and consumption. For Brecher these actions could be the forerunners of a great nonviolent global insurgency to save our planet from climate catastrophe. Jeremy Brecher, writer and activist, cofounded the Labor Network for Sustainability. Part One of this two part interview aired on December 20.
