Neither the origins of nor the solutions to the climate crisis can be understood without facing enduring political questions about class, race, gender, colonialism, corporate power, North-South relations and so on. This interview with Larry Lohmann of The Corner House for the Greek website Re-public: re-imagining democracy explores the connections between the fight against catastrophic climate change and movements for social justice; attempts to depoliticise the global warming issue; the US role in promoting the Kyoto Protocol; the contradictions of carbon trading; the relative isolation of Northern middle-class activists; the role of India and China; and the dangers of technology monopolies.
