The question of how to avoid environmental catastrophe has never been more urgent. Sea levels are rising, threatening to displace millions of people and destroy countless homes. Rainfall is becoming increasingly unpredictable, raising food insecurity. Plant and animal species are more threatened every day, endangering entire ecosystems.

Yet, Trump’s answer is to cut funding for research and science. The budget would gut the Environmental Protection Agency, including programs addressing climate change and pollution. The budget for nuclear weapons, however, continues to soar.

As people around the country mobilize for what is expected to be a massive People's Climate March on April 29, the most the capitalist media says we can do is to make small lifestyle choices like changing our light bulbs or buying new, expensive appliances. These small changes cannot address the titanic threat facing people around the world because of climate change. The only path steering clear from certain climate disaster is a dramatic change in the organization of our economy.

Join the Party for Socialism and Liberation in a discussion of the the environmental effects of capitalism, how to fight back, and how you can march with the PSL at upcoming national and regional events in D.C., including the People's Climate March, May Day, and more!
