Global carbon emissions have reached historic highs, and we're seeing the consequences with epic floods in Alberta and Toronto. Despite the clear threat of climate catastrophe, tar sands production is increasing--devastating indigenous communities, and leaking from pipelines. 

Why is capitalism killing the planet and how can we stop it? Join a discussion on the underlying dynamics of capitalism that are driving the tar sands, and how we can build a movement against the tar sands and the ecocidal system.
