Tijd voor actie! Radio Savannah duikt het klimaatactivisme in en zoekt met How to Blow Up a Pipeline van Andreas Malm naar nieuwe manieren om de klimaatcrisis te lijf te gaan. Wat voor protest is er nodig? En is het tijd om oliepijpleidingen op te gaan blazen?
The science on climate change has been clear for a very long time now. Yet despite decades of appeals, mass street protests, petition campaigns, and peaceful demonstrations, we are still facing a booming fossil fuel industry, rising seas, rising emission levels, and a rising temperature. With the stakes so high, why haven’t we moved beyond peaceful protest?
In this lyrical manifesto, noted climate scholar (and saboteur of SUV tires and coal mines) Andreas Malm makes an impassioned call for the climate movement to escalate its tactics in the face of ecological collapse. We need, he argues, to force fossil fuel extraction to stop—with our actions, with our bodies, and by defusing and destroying its tools. We need, in short, to start blowing up some oil pipelines.
De wetenschap over klimaatverandering is nu al heel lang duidelijk. Maar ondanks decennia van oproepen, massale straatprotesten, petitiecampagnes en vreedzame demonstraties, worden we nog steeds geconfronteerd met een bloeiende fossielebrandstofindustrie, stijgende zeespiegels, stijgende emissieniveaus en stijgende temperaturen. Als er zoveel op het spel staat, waarom zijn we dan nog niet verder gegaan dan vreedzaam protest? In dit lyrische manifest doet de bekende klimaatwetenschapper (en saboteur van suv-banden en kolenmijnen) Andreas Malm een hartstochtelijke oproep aan de klimaatbeweging om haar tactiek te escaleren met het oog op de ecologische ineenstorting. We moeten de winning van fossiele brandstoffen dwingen te stoppen – met onze acties, met onze lichamen, en door het onschadelijk maken en vernietigen van installaties. Kortom, we moeten een aantal oliepijpleidingen opblazen.

The Intersectional Environmentalist van Leah Thomas
From the activist who coined the term comes a primer on intersectional environmentalism for the next generation of activists looking to create meaningful, inclusive, and sustainable change.
The Intersectional Environmentalist examines the inextricable link between environmentalism, racism, and privilege, and promotes awareness of the fundamental truth that we cannot save the planet without uplifting the voices of its people — especially those most often unheard. Written by Leah Thomas, a prominent voice in the field and the activist who coined the term “Intersectional Environmentalism,” this book is simultaneously a call to action, a guide to instigating change for all, and a pledge to work towards the empowerment of all people and the betterment of the planet.
Thomas shows how not only are Black, Indigenous and people of color unequally and unfairly impacted by environmental injustices, but she argues that the fight for the planet lies in tandem to the fight for civil rights; and in fact, that one cannot exist without the other. An essential read, this book addresses the most pressing issues that the people and our planet face, examines and dismantles privilege, and looks to the future as the voice of a movement that will define a generation.
All We Can Save: Truth, Courage and Solutions for the Climate Crisis van Ayana Elizabeth Johnson & Katharine K. Wilkinson
Provocative and illuminating essays from women at the forefront of the climate movement who are harnessing truth, courage, and solutions to lead humanity forward.
There is a renaissance blooming in the climate movement: leadership that is more characteristically feminine and more faithfully feminist, rooted in compassion, connection, creativity, and collaboration. While its clear that women and girls are vital voices and agents of change for this planet, they are too often missing from the proverbial table. More than a problem of bias, its a dynamic that sets us up for failure. To change everything, we need everyone.
All We Can Save illuminates the expertise and insights of dozens of diverse women leading on climate in the United Statesscientists, journalists, farmers, lawyers, teachers, activists, innovators, wonks, and designers, across generations, geographies, and raceand aims to advance a more representative, nuanced, and solution-oriented public conversation on the climate crisis. These women offer a spectrum of ideas and insights for how we can rapidly, radically reshape society.
Intermixing essays with poetry and art, this book is both a balm and a guide for knowing and holding what has been done to the world, while bolstering our resolve never to give up on one another or our collective future. We must summon truth, courage, and solutions to turn away from the brink and toward life-giving possibility. Curated by two climate leaders, the book is a collection and celebration of visionaries who are leading us on a path toward all we can save.
