400 ppm

William Carroll, Department of Sociology, University of Victoria — May 2015.


View on YouTube website

In January 2015, scientists recorded atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide above 400 parts per million (ppm) on a regular basis – the first time such a level had been detected so early in the calendar year. It is well established that levels of CO2 above 350 (already well above the preindustrial norm of 275 ppm) spur global warming. We are now experiencing the effects: extreme weather, droughts, rising sea levels, thawing permafrost, etc. Levels above 450 will most likely put the planet on an inescapable course toward catastrophic climate change.

251. 1 March 2015 Green Jobs
We cannot develop an ecologically-responsible and just economy without considering the consequences for work and employment. But what is the meaning of 'green work' in capitalist societies of endless production and consumption for the purposes of profits? If we scale back on tar sands, fracking, and other dirty energy projects, as we must, workers who lose their jobs will need retraining, temporary income support, and a green energy infrastructure to work in. This will require a whole range of collective investments and decisions.

Syriza represents the first and the strongest democratic response to the bizarre deepening of neoliberalism after the 2008 crisis.
