Sparking a Worldwide Energy Revolution
Social Struggles in the Transition to a Post-Petrol World
Edited By Kolya Abramsky
“The energy and climate crisis cannot be solved unless grassroots movements are able to abolish the current economic, political and social order and build non-capitalist, egalitarian and participatory societies. We cannot expect governments to do this.... We can build our own energy systems—for the common good, not for private profit. We have the tools and the experience. It can be done. It depends on us.”—from the Introduction
