Leading environmental historian and award-winning author Jason W. Moore challenges the accepted view that climate chaos is the result of human activity in general, aka the Anthropocene. Instead, Jason argues that we live in the Capitalocene era. The ecological crisis , he says, is essentially the outcome of capitalism’s exploitation of unpaid work, women and nature. He elaborates this class-based viewpoint in his ground-breaking book 'Capitalism in the Web of Life'. He explains why nothing meaningful will come out of COP27 in Egypt. Jason, professor of sociology at the State University of New York, Binghampton, believes the climate crisis has brought many things to a head and provides opportunities for a transition beyond the Capitalocene.
