  1. Faiz thanks for posting this. I watched the whole thing. The most interesting new thing that he said was "I sometimes think that maybe we'll someday have an idea of the environmental proletariat . . . [Engels talked as much about the degraded environmental conditions of the English working class as well as their degraded working conditions]. . we'll get back to an understanding where we don't separate these things so much." (1:47) This ties together his concept of "metabolic rift" with a socialist movement. The idea of an 'ecological proletariat' is a powerful one and one that needs more development.
