“The most reliable single source of information and strategic insights
for climate justice is Climate and Capitalism, the website Ian Angus edits.”
CLIMATE & CAPITALISM is an ecosocialist journal, reflecting the viewpoint of environmental Marxism. It has three goals:
- To provide news and analysis to inform, educate and develop the green left;
- To contribute to building an international movement against capitalist destruction of the environment and for ecosocialism;
- To encourage and facilitate collaboration and exchanges of views among socialists and ecology activists.
Opinions expressed in individual articles are not necessarily shared by Climate & Capitalism or Monthly Review or any of the editors.
Alliance with Monthly Review
In February 2012, we announced an alliance with the world’s foremost independent socialist journal, Monthly Review. We remain editorially independent— MR has no responsibility for our content, and vice versa — but we are sharing technical resources and exploring ways to increase both technical and political collaboration.
In their announcement of the alliance, Monthly Review’s editor’s wrote:
“As part of the development of what will eventually be called MRonline we recently invited Ian Angus, founder and editor of the important Climate & Capitalism blog to join forces with us and to locate Climate and Capitalism on the MR website, with himself as editor. We are happy to announce that he agreed and the blog can be found on both the MR website and http://climateandcapitalism.com.”
About the Editor
Climate & Capitalism was founded by and continues to be edited by Ian Angus. His most recent book, co-authored with Simon Butler, is Too Many People? Population, Immigration, and the Environmental Crisis (Haymarket, 2011).
His previous books include Canadian Bolsheviks: The Early Years of The Communist Party of Canada (2nd edition, Trafford, 2004) and The Global Fight for Climate Justice: Anticapitalist Responses to Global Warming and Ecological Destruction (Fernwood, 2010).
(To avoid confusion and unnecessary emails: He is not the Ian Angus who teaches at Simon Fraser University, nor is he the Iain Angus who used to be a Canadian Member of Parliament, or the Ian Angus who is a lawyer for some satellite and telecom companies, or the Ian Angus who was a professional football player in Scotland.)

email: ecosocialism [at] gmail [dot] com
If you have an article that you think might be appropriate for Climate & Capitalism, please send it to ecosocialism[at]gmail[dot]com. If it has previously been published elsewhere on the web, please send a link rather than the article itself.
We wish we could respond to every submission, but our limited resources make that impossible. We will reply if we plan to publish your article or or if we think it could be publishable with changes.
If we don’t publish your submission, it isn’t necessarily because we don’t like it. Many otherwise excellent submissions don’t make it to the site simply because (a) they don’t fit our current needs; or (b) they cover subjects we have recently dealt with; or (c) we have more submissions on hand than we can deal with in the time we have available.
