Earth At Risk: Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet

Book cover Earth at Risk: Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet.Published: 2012
Edited by Derrick Jensen, Lierre Keith

The annual conference Earth at Risk: Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet features environmental thinkers and activists who are willing to ask the hardest questions about the seriousness of the planet’s situation, and this book presents an impassioned critique of the dominant culture from every angle.

Speakers from the conference are featured in this volume and include:

  • William Catton, who explains ecological overshoot;
  • Thomas Linzey, who gives a fiery call for community sovereignty;
  • Jane Caputi, who exposes patriarchy’s mythic dismemberment of the goddess;
  • Aric McBay, who discusses historically effective resistance strategies; and
  • Stephanie McMillan, who takes down capitalism.

One by one, they build an unassailable case that the rich should be deprived of their ability to steal from the poor and the powerful of their ability to destroy the planet. These speakers offer their ideas on what can be done to build a real resistance movement: one that includes all levels of direct action that can actually match the scale of the problem.

Also included are the speakers Derrick Jensen, Arundhati Roy, Rikki Ott, Gail Dines, Waziyatawin, Lierre Keith, and Nora Barrows-Friedman.

Deep Green Resistance: Strategy to Save the Planet

Book cover Deep Green Resistance.Deep Green Resistance is a plan of action for anyone determined to fight for this planet—and win.

Published: 2011

For years, Derrick Jensen has asked his audiences, “Do you think this culture will undergo a voluntary transformation to a sane and sustainable way of life?” No one ever says yes.

Deep Green Resistance starts where the environmental movement leaves off: industrial civilization is incompatible with life. Technology can’t fix it, and shopping—no matter how green—won’t stop it. To save this planet, we need a serious resistance movement that can bring down the industrial economy. Deep Green Resistance evaluates strategic options for resistance, from nonviolence to guerrilla warfare, and the conditions required for those options to be successful. It provides an exploration of organizational structures, recruitment, security, and target selection for both aboveground and underground action. Deep Green Resistance also discusses a culture of resistance and the crucial support role that it can play.

The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability

Book cover The Vegetarian Myth: Food, Justice, and Sustainability.We’ve been told that a vegetarian diet can feed the hungry, honor the animals, and save the planet. But, is it true?

Published: 2009

Lierre Keith believed in that plant-based diet and spent twenty years as a vegan. But in The Vegetarian Myth, she argues that we’ve been led astray—not by our longings for a just and sustainable world, but by our ignorance.

The truth is that agriculture is a relentless assault against the planet, and more of the same won’t save us. In service to annual grains, humans have devastated prairies and forests, driven countless species extinct, altered the climate, and destroyed the topsoil—the basis of life itself. Keith argues that if we are to save this planet, our food must be an act of profound and abiding repair: it must come from inside living communities, not be imposed across them.

Part memoir, part nutritional primer, and part political manifesto, The Vegetarian Myth will challenge everything you thought you knew about food politics.

“The Vegetarian Myth is one of the most important books people, masses of them, can read, as we try with all our might, intelligence, skill, hope, dream and memory, to turn the disastrous course the planet is on. It’s a wonderful book, full of thoughtful, soulful teachings, and appropriate rage. My admiration for Lierre’s sharing of life experience and knowledge is complete.”
Alice Walker, prize-winning author, “The Color Purple”

“This book saved my life. Not only does The Vegetarian Myth make clear how we should be eating, but also how the dominant food system is killing the planet. This necessary book challenges many of the destructive myths we live by and offers us a way back into our bodies, and back into the fight to save the planet.”
Derrick Jensen, author of Endgame and A Language Older Than Words

“Everyone who eats should read this book. Everyone who eats vegetarian should memorize it…. This is the single most important book I’ve ever read on diet, agriculture, and ecology. And as a farmer and ex-vegan, that’s saying a lot.”
Aric McBay, author of What We Leave Behind and Peak Oil Survival

“We may not want to face the facts, but Keith sees this as no excuse to stay in denial. If delivered as a speech, you could see that no one in the audience would be [seated] at the end. I have never seen such rousing prose.”
www.ZoeHarcombe.com (August 7, 2011)

“In The Vegetarian Myth ex-vegan Lierre Keith argues that saving the planet and ending the suffering found in factory farms can not be achieved by refusing to eat animals, it can only be achieved by boycotting modern agricultural practices, which Keith calls ‘the most destructive thing that people have done to the planet.’”
