Richard Smith calling for Social Revolution against Climate Catastrophe

This is a video recording of an interview with economic historian Richard Smith, author of a couple of recent radical articles on ecology and global warming on Truthout (link here to his “Six Theses on Capitalism and the Destruction of Life on Earth” and here to “Beyond Growth or Beyond Capitalism?”) as well as of the forthcoming book To Save the Planet, Turn the World Upside Down (2014).  Smith calls for revolution, the shuttering of major corporations, socialization of production, participatory economic planning, and the “overthrowing [of] the entire order” throughout the world.

Arguably, the most interesting part of the interview takes place after the seventh minute.
