Today across the planet two familiar forces -— corporate capital and the broad left — are furiously contesting for the resources and authority to direct the mobilization necessary to restore a habitable planet in the little time that remains.

Ramana, a physicist and energy researcher, on the struggle and how the left might prevail to continue the human experiment.
