Ecocide: Kill the Corporation Before it Kills Us
Format: Paperback / softback
Publisher: Manchester University Press
This is the first book to argue comprehensively that unless we destroy the legal and political basis for the corporation, we are unlikely to reverse the decline of the eco-system, and therefore we will hasten the end of the species.
We have reached the point of no return. The existential threat of climate change is now a reality. The world has never been more vulnerable. Yet corporations are already planning a life beyond this point. The business models of fossil fuel giants factor in continued profitability in a scenario of a five-degree increase in global temperature. An increase that will kill millions, if not billions. This is the shocking reality laid bare in a new, hard-hitting book by David Whyte. Ecocide makes clear the problem won’t be solved by tinkering around the edges, instead it maps out a plan to end the corporation’s death-watch over us. This book will reveal how the corporation has risen to this position of near impunity, but also what we need to do to fix it.
