Victor Wallis will lead a discussion based on his book Red-Green Revolution: The Politics and Technology of Ecosocialism (2018), in which he argues that addressing the environmental crisis will require a radical reorganization of society -- over and above whatever changes are made in the direction of cleaner forms of energy production. He recognizes that restoring biodiversity must be central to this process, but argues that we need to understand the social conditions that will be required in order to achieve that goal on a large scale. What those conditions are and how it is possible to approach them are the core issues posed in Red-Green Revolution (copies of which will be available at this event).
Victor Wallis teaches history and politics at the Berklee College of Music. He was for twenty years the editor of Socialism and Democracy. He is also the author of Democracy Denied: Five Lectures on U.S.Politics (2019) and of many articles on ecological and political issues. He is a frequent guest on broadcast and podcast talk shows, and has been an invited lecturer in Brazil, China, and France.
