Andreas Malm on Climate and Crisis as the »New Normal«

Verlag Matthes & Seitz Berlin @ BRAIN&BOOKS

Crisis as the »new normal« and which battles are worth fighting.

The scientific facts concerning the climate crisis in numbers, showing mass extinction and global warming, are right in front of us. People are protesting in front of conference halls and government buildings. They start petitions and collect signatures. Still, fossile energy industry is booming. Is it time to start destroying what destroys us?

Andreas Malm demands escalation: We have to stop the production of fossile fuels – with our action, our bodies, with everything we can. In his historically grounded reading of the history of successful social movements, for womens’ right to vote, against apartheid – Malm shows that every one of these battles transcended limits: Destruction of property, attacking infracstures. Only thus, the required pressure could be built up in order to advance change. With the passion of an activist and the knowledge of a scientist, Malm discusses the area between nonviolence and direct action, strategy and technology, democracy and social change.
