Ian Angus bio

Ian Angus

Ian Angus is a veteran of the socialist and environmental movements in Canada and internationally.
He is the founder and editor of climateandcapitalism.com, an online journal focusing on capitalism, climate change and the ecosocialist alternative, which aims to provide news and analysis to inform, educate and develop the green left; contribute to building an international movement against capitalist destruction of the environment and for ecosocialism; and facilitate collaboration and exchanges of views among socialists and ecology activists.

In 2004, Angus established the Socialist History Project, an online archive of socialist history and thought. He is also a member of Canadian Dimension editorial collective.

Alongside numerous articles, Angus has written the following books:
The Global Fight for Climate Justice: Anticapitalist Responses to Global Warming and Environmental Destruction.
Confronting the Climate Change Crisis: An Eco-socialist Perspective.
Food Crisis: World Hunger, Agribusiness and the Food Sovereignty Alternative.
How to Avoid Action on Climate Change: The Fine Art of Greenwash in Canadian Politics.
Canadian Bolsheviks: The Early Years of the Communist Party of Canada.

Angus’ latest book, co-authored with Simon Butler, Too Many People? Population, Immigration, and
the Environmental Crisis
will be launched at the Climate Change-Social Change 2011 conference. In it, Angus argues: “The politics of ecological revolution are distinguished from the politics of populationism above all by a commitment to confront the powerful corporate interests that stand in the way of change, and to democratically refashion human society to function in harmony with the natural world… Reducing population will not solve ecological problems, but replacing the system can make it possible to reduce population pressure where it does exist.”
