A Green New Deal, and Beyond: Facing Ecological Crises

We face multiple, cascading ecological crises that require dramatic changes in public policy and everyday life. The Green New Deal proposals have been criticized for being too radical, but what if they are not radical enough? Robert Jensen will offer a framework for understanding today’s debates over environmental issues.

Jensen, recently retired from teaching in the School of Journalism at the University of Texas, is the author of The End of Patriarchy: Radical Feminism for Men and Plain Radical: Living, Loving, and Learning to Leave the Planet Gracefully.
