Mobilizing for the Climate Emergency—a Seth Klein podcast

Seth Klein at 2019 BCTF AGM

Seth Klein offers a preview of his forthcoming book (due out date 2020). He argues we need to approach the climate crisis with a new mindset – as an urgent existential threat requiring a wartime-scale emergency response; a new society-wide mobilization. Seth offers lesson’s from Canada’s WWII mobilization experience, as a reminder that we have done this before – we have mobilized in common cause, across class and race and gender, to confront an existential threat. And in doing so, we have retooled our entire economy in the space of a few years. Seth also speaks to the role of youth in the climate movement, and argues teachers should support their students in such efforts. And he outlines numerous actions the BCTF and teachers generally can undertake to support climate mobilization.
