A new paper published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows after decades of near equilibrium, Greenland began losing ice in the 1980s and it’s accelerated sixfold since then. That has sped up its contribution to sea level rise and raises concerns about what the future holds.

OP/ED

“Marxism-Leninism” and Imperialism

The capitalist crisis has led to a skyrocketing interest in socialism and revolution. Many young people have gravitated toward Maoist “Marxism-Leninism” as its “anti-imperialist” message resonates with them. However, what is the real relationship between Maoism and imperialism?For billions of people around the world, the “horror without end” of imperialism has been manifested in invasions, occupations, and decades of destabilization. These ravages have inspired heroic, frequently revolutionary movements of resistance in the so-called ex-colonial countries, while the advanced workers and youth in the imperialist countries have built movements in solidarity with these struggles.Many liberals oppose the imperialist countries’ relentless violation of the sovereignty of other nations and peoples, as they see this “Caesarism” as fundamentally anathema to democracy—although Marxists understand that imperialism and liberal capitalism go hand in hand. Many other people cannot stomach the crimes “their” governments commit abroad, so they put a “plus” to counter the imperialists’ “minus” and end up supporting the governments of those countries under attack by imperialism.

The Commune is the Supreme Expression of Participatory Democracy: a Conversation with Anacaona Marin of El Panal Commune

The Alexis Vive Patriotic Force, which has deep roots in Caracas’ 23 de Enero barrio, began planning a commune years before Chavez even proposed the communal path toward socialism. Yet when Chavez announced the plan to join communal councils into a higher form of organization, Alexis Vive wholeheartedly embraced the initiative and has since then built a highly successful commune called El Panal Commune[1] involving some 13,000 people. We spoke with a key cadre of El Panal about this project that is both economic and political to find out how it is coping with the crisis escalated by US aggressions.The commune is usually thought of a space of construction – for the political and economic reorganization of society –, but it is also a space of resistance. Let’s talk about the commune today, in a period where Venezuela is under attack by imperialism.

A “Green New Deal”?: The Eco-Syndicalist Alternative, Part I

Capitalist dynamics are at the very heart of the current crisis that humanity faces over global warming.When we talk of “global warming,” we’re talking about the rapid — and on-going — rise in the average world-wide surface and ocean temperature. Thus far a rise of 0.8 degrees Celsius (1.4 degrees Fahrenheit) since 1880. According to an ongoing temperature analysis conducted by scientists at NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, two-thirds of this temperature increase has occurred since 1975. A one-degree rise in temperature might seem like no big deal. As the NASA scientists point out, however, “A one-degree global change is significant because it takes a vast amount of heat to warm all the oceans, atmosphere, and land by that much.”We know that carbon dioxide emissions from the burning of fossil fuels is at the heart of the problem. For many centuries the proportion of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere ranged between 200 and 300 parts per million. By the 1950s the growth of industrial capitalism since the 1800s had pushed this to the top of this range — 310 parts per million. Since then the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has risen very rapidly — to more than 410 parts per million by 2018. This is the result of the vast rise in the burning of fossil fuels in the era since World War II — coal, petroleum, natural gas.
