No Time for Half Measures: Upending Destructive Paradigms

The world's social justice movements are at a stark crossroads: We celebrate marches in New York and non-binding deals in Paris, but we have failed to shift the root drivers of the climate crisis. Every dollar of wealth created heats up our planet and creates inequality in its wake, as the vast majority of that dollar will end up in the hands of a tiny elite.

With: Alnoor Ladha, Executive Director of The Rules; Jess Rimington, Managing Director of The Rules, visiting scholar at Stanford 's Global Projects Center; Annie Leonard, Executive Director of Greenpeace USA.
