Corona, Climate, Chronic Emergency : War Communism in the Twenty-First Century Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The economic and social impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been unprecedented.

Governments have spoken of being at war and find themselves forced to seek new powers in order to maintain social order and prevent the spread of the virus.

This is often exercised with the notion that we will return to normal as soon as we can.

What if that is not possible? Secondly, if the state can mobilize itself in the face of an invisible foe like this pandemic, it should also be able to confront visible dangers such as climate destruction with equal force.

In Corona, Climate, Chronic Emergency, leading environmental thinker, Andreas Malm demands that this war-footing state should be applied on a permanent basis to the ongoing climate front line.

He offers proposals on how the climate movement should use this present emergency to make that case.

There can be no excuse for inaction any longer.
