Join this presentation and discussion with Fred Magdoff, Professor Emeritus of Plant and Soil Science at the University of Vermont, regarding climate change, capitalism, and socialism.

Our climate emergency has ignited global protest and organizing for a transition to eliminate emissions of greenhouse gases. This raises urgent questions. What would a socially just and ecologically sustainable future society look like? And if the current economic system can’t adequately respond to this need, what are the strategies to advance our struggle?

Fred Magdoff is Professor Emeritus of Plant and Soil Science at the University of Vermont. Among his recent books are Agriculture and Food in Crisis (edited with Brian Tokar), What Every Environmentalist Needs to Know About Capitalism (with John Bellamy Foster) and Creating an Ecological Society: Toward a revolutionary transformation (with Chris Williams).

Alliance for Community Media says FCC Cable Vote Will Harm Local Media

The proposed rules would allow cable companies to assign market values to these benefits and then charge the amount back to local communities in most cases. Benefits include items like free cable subscriptions to schools, discounts for the elderly, and fiber connectivity to local government buildings like police departments, fire stations, and libraries.
