Rank #7: A Green New Deal For Canada feat. Leigh Phillips
We touch on a lot of things ranging from clean energy, the shortcomings of modern day environmentalism, FernGully, a working class solution to global warming, the opening skirmishes of decarbonisation versus decolonisation, the absolute necessity of a massive public sector solution to the climate crisis that we face, and the fact that the climate crisis is completely within our ability to solve using actually-existing technologies but that it requires a massive mobilisation of the working class and revolutionary politics to do so.
