NI547 - Climate Capitalism - January/February 2024
The energy transition has arrived – or at least, the material impacts of new green technologies have, along with fantastic amounts of hot air from corporations keen to big up their own contributions.
In this issue, we examine the changes that are really taking shape, and how the new economy is replicating the exploitative practices of the old one. And we ask what it would take to build something better and tackle climate change head on.

We urgently need to transition away from fossil fuels to prevent the worst harms of climate change, but the process is turning into a massive, and often damaging bonanza for companies looking to profit from a slice of the climate action. We examine the way transition is taking place across the Middle East and North Africa, including Israel's eco-normalization policies, and look at the mining and offshore wind energy required for a new green economy.
Elsewhere in this issue, we have reports from Palestine, and Tilda Kammlein explains how the illegal timber trade is fuelling conflict in Senegal.
