WW3 #47 Climate Chaos
EDITORIAL WW3 ISSUE #47 CLIMATE CHAOS
We began work on WW3 #47 in 2014 after the People’s Climate March.
We wanted to call attention to global warming which threatens life on earth.
We were inspired by the participation of artists in the march.
But this magazine is a process of discovery. Working on it,
we couldn’t avoid another inconvenient truth. Racism.
In the endless police shootings. In the placement
of dangerous fossil fuel infrastructure in black communities.
In Flint Michigan’s water crisis & strip mining in Goa, India.
At the Standing Rock Reservation, North Dakota,
thousands of Native Americans are blocking construction
of an oil pipeline which threatens their water supply.
A group of them were set upon with attack dogs.
While there have been anti-pipeline protests
all over the country, few have been targeted this way.
We are at the intersection of ecological crisis
and race and class oppression.
To solve one we must confront the other.
In this issue a range of voices
hold this moment
up to the light
