In this Our Changing Climate climate change video essay, I look at how the rich really cause climate change. Specifically, I look at how the focus on the richest people in the world’s consumption habits (i.e. our obsession with Taylor Swift’s jet emissions) distracts us from how they make their money in the first place. It is through their control and power over production that the rich drive emissions through the roof in pursuit of profits. In order to understand the climate crisis, in order to understand what’s driving the climate crisis, we need to look beyond individual footprints and toward the point of production. It is here where the rampant emissions stem from. At the point of production, a handful of individuals make choices that have dire ramifications for billions and dark consequences for the environment.

This video leaned heavily on Matt Huber’s book Climate Change and Class War, you can check it out here: https://www.versobooks.com/books/3973-climate-change-as-class-war
