There is no Planet B

The extreme heatwaves in Europe, drought, and flooding in Pakistan during 2022 were telling indications of the imminency of climate change and environmental degradation. Voted the fifth warmest year globally, 2022 has demonstrated the consequences of human-driven actions and failure by governments and organizations to address environmental issues.

2022 witnessed the resistance against the COP27 and COP15 conferences as well as a lawsuit against the Swedish state led by many protesters including Greta Thunberg. These events exemplify the superficiality of targets in preserving biodiversity or halting the decline of nature. COP 15 demonstrated the failure to meet the previous 2020 Aichi targets and continued to isolate important actors such as indigenous communities especially when targets include the conservation of land despite continued land extraction and deforestation at the hands of governments as opposed by Indigenous communities.

Addressing environment and ecology, this newsletter includes books aimed at critically analyzing the current political and economic system by providing alternative possibilities. We have also included articles and podcasts on current affairs.
