Event description
HALF-EARTH SOCIALISM: A Plan to Save the Future from Extinction, Climate Change and Pandemics.

About this event

Authors Drew Pendergrass and Troy Vettese will discuss their radical plan to address climate disaster and guarantee the good life for all with Kevin Gallagher, host of WPKN's "Digging in the Dirt."

Rather than allow the forces of the free market to destroy the planet, we must strive for a post-capitalist society able to guarantee the good life the entire planet. This plan, which they call Half-Earth Socialism, means we must:

• rewild half the Earth to absorb carbon emissions and restore biodiversity

• pursue a rapid transition to renewable energy, paired with drastic cuts in consumption by the world’s wealthiest populations

• enact global veganism to cut down on energy and land use

• inaugurate worldwide socialist planning to efficiently and equitably manage production

• welcome the participation of everyone—even you!

Dinner Distrupted is a series created in partnership with libraries in Fairfield and New Haven County engaging patrons in collective discussions and actions focused on engaging residents to play a more active role in their food system. Imagine a future where the public grounds are a food forests, adding biodiversity to the landscape, which ultimately helps to improve air quality, regenerate the soil, aids with water conservation, and increases public health and wellbeing. Food security is defined as the state of having reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious foods. What affects food security is policy, zoning, land use, and increasingly, climate change.
