George Monbiot’s articles on Climate Change include:
The Smog Chancellor – Who is the world’s leading environmental vandal? The answer may surprise you.
Don’t Look Now – The media avoids the subject of climate breakdown – to do otherwise is to bring the entire infrastructure of thought crashing down
The Pollution Paradox – Dirty industries spend more on politics, keeping us in the fossil age.
The Drums of War – The combination of automation, complexity and climate change is dangerous in ways we haven’t even begun to grasp.
The Flight of Reason – Sorry, but you cannot build new runways and prevent climate breakdown
What Lies Beneath – It’s a simple choice: stop all fossil fuel prospecting, or break the Paris agreement on climate change.
The Purse is Mightier Than the Pen – The climate crisis is here, now, but a compromised, corrupted media doesn’t want to know.
Mumbo-Jumbo Jets – I see the people on trial for occupying a runway at Heathrow as democratic heroes.
Sacrifice – The joints of meat that do more damage than a long-haul flight
Life and Death – The remarkable decline in violence between humans suggests that we could also restrain our violence against the planet.
Cop-Out – The COP21 climate talks in Paris were not the success that governments claim, but a disastrous failure.
A Storm of Ignorance – Censoring official advice, stripping the hills and rivers, the government ensures that disasters like the Cumbria floods will keep recurring.
Look Around – There are plenty of real problems with aircraft emissions. But thousands of people are obsessed instead with a fairy tale.
Churchill Syndrome – Why is the government so quick to bomb, yet so slow to act on climate change?
Nothing to See Here – In the greatest environmental disaster of the 21st Century (so far), Indonesia has been blotted out by smoke. And the media.
China Syndrome – We should stop recycling the old “Yellow Peril” myth. The people most hostile to action on climate change are American and British, not Chinese.
A Prehistory of Violence – It now looks as if the greatest mass extinction on Earth – 250 million years ago – was caused by fossil fuel burning.
A Hole in the System – The outrageous, untold story of how big business dumps its costs on us.
Applauding Themselves to Death – Why the UN climate talks have wasted 23 years, and how this can change.
A State Licence to Rob the Public – The government has torpedoed its promised community energy revolution – to the benefit of big business.
