Bill Resnick talks with Jeremy Brecher, labor activist, writer and historian, who has extensively studied popular upheavals through U.S history. In the 1930s and again in the ‘60s very few predicted the explosive uprisings from below, which profoundly changed this country. Today Bill and Jeremy discuss how climate change is hitting hard here and across the world and that our corporate friends, drunk with power and profit, will not come close to doing what's necessary to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Over 70 percent of U.S. North Americans are now deeply concerned. Conditions are being created for another popular upheaval. That could well set the stage for the left to take control, as it did in the ‘30s and ‘60s, and implement the left’s democratic solution to stop climate cataclysm, as well as reject the emerging plan of the corporate set who insist on lavish state funding for questionable new technologies as the preferred climate solution.
