This pamphlet, written in 2008, just as capitalism’s economic crisis was really setting in, shows how “human” caused global warming is a misnomer; it is capitalist-caused, it flows directly from the very mode of functioning of capitalism itself. The pamphlet also draws a link between this environmental crisis and the then-developing economic crisis. In a series of appendices it also analyses the main scientific explanations for global warming, the arguments of the “scientific” denialists and gives the financial and political ties of these denialists. Much of this material is more or less settled today, but it some readers might find it useful.
