We earthlings have had to swallow some hard truths lately. The impending impacts of climate change, and just how far we are from meeting our goals to stop them, have been brought into crisp focus by not only major, intergovernmental reports but also the slew of dramatic weather events around the globe.
It can be easy to feel hopeless, like there's nothing we can do to stop our species from obliterating the planet as we know it in less than a generation. But there's one sect of people who think they have the answer and, if everyone would just get on board, could easily curb the effects of climate change. It's called ecosocialism, and it's exactly as radical as it sounds.
