Books: New Book Links Climate Activism and Socialism

review by John Riddell | April 18, 2014

An outstanding book by Umair Muhammad, Confronting Injustice, presents a strong case for the necessity of socialism to counter the impending calamity of global warming.

Bullet #969: Free Transit: Three Reasons It Is an Idea Whose Time Has Come

by Michael Laxer | April 18, 2014

Oil industry lobbyists in Canada have taken the country by the reins. At least, that's the implication of the Polaris Institute's new report released today. The report documents 2,733 meetings held between the oil industry and federal government officials since 2008. That figure outstrips meetings with environmental organizations by a whopping 463 percent.
