"Climate Change as Class War: Building Socialism on a Warming Planet" (Verso Books, 2022), written by Professor Matthew Huber, was reviewed by Real Change News. 

"Instead of preaching personal austerity, which he argues wouldn’t be enough to solve climate change even if it were adopted wholesale, he thinks we should be looking at things systemically," writes Tobias Coughlin-Bogue. "Interestingly, Huber doesn’t go in for any cheap shots against the greedy capitalist overlords... Instead, he points out that the fundamental logic of capitalism—the 'accumulation drive for surplus value'—is a feature of the system sustained by relatively impartial laws of competition and cost."
