The Everyday Violence of Modern Culture

By Max Wilbert / Deep Green Resistance Modern society — industrial civilization — is built on violence. This violence goes largely unnoticed. When it is noticed, it’s often seen a series of isolated incidents, rather than a fundamental part of the dominant culture. # Here is an average morning inside of this culture. First, you … Continue reading The Everyday Violence of Modern Culture

The Ecomodernist Manifesto is a program for genocide and ecocide

By Derrick Jensen / Deep Green Resistance Robert Jay Lifton noted that before you can commit any mass atrocity, you must convince yourself and others that what you’re doing is not atrocious, but rather beneficial. You must have what he called a “claim to virtue.” Thus the Nazis weren’t, from their perspective, committing mass murder … Continue reading The Ecomodernist Manifesto is a program for genocide and ecocide

Kim Hill: What’s Wrong with Renewable Energy?

Ten things environmentalists need to know about renewable energy: 1. Solar panels and wind turbines aren’t made out of nothing. They are made out of metals, plastics, chemicals. These products have been mined out of the ground, transported, processed, manufactured. Each stage leaves behind a trail of devastation. ... Continue reading →

Green Technology and Renewable Energy: The Deep Green Resistance Perspective

Few topics generate more commentary on our page than critiques of alternative energy. For many, solar, wind, and other non-fossil energy sources and technologies represent a pragmatic hope for saving the biosphere. Our position on these technologies is that they represent a false hope for a couple of reasons. One: their manufacturing processes are fossil-fuel … Continue reading Green Technology and Renewable Energy: The Deep Green Resistance Perspective

Energy and CO2 emissions for one wind turbine is disturbing

This very impressive research and analysis on the energy requirements and the CO2 emissions for one wind energy capturing device (wind turbine) should be sobering, and disturbing – just the rebar and concrete used for the base of a 2.5 megawatt structure! This, on top of enormous and ongoing land destruction for so-called wind farms. … Continue reading Energy and CO2 emissions for one wind turbine is disturbing

Are You Ready To Resist Roundup?

Deep Green Resistance member Raven Gray is actively writing for her new blog, Wild Awake, on subjects ranging from “reskilling” and permaculture to listening to the land and protecting it against industrial civilization. Her whole blog is worth following and exploring, but we wanted to especially highlight her recent piece about planned use of Roundup … Continue reading Are You Ready To Resist Roundup?

Reality check on resource requirements of wind power

As we’ve pointed out in our Green Technology & Renewable Energy FAQs, so-called “clean” energy sources such as solar and wind become anything but, when harvested via industrial means. Each PV solar panel, each wind turbine, and every other proposal for generating electricity depends on mining, inherently destructive to the earth. In addition, each requires … Continue reading Reality check on resource requirements of wind power

Open Letter to Reclaim Environmentalism

By Lierre Keith and Derrick Jensen Once, the environmental movement was about protecting the natural world from the insatiable demands of this extractive culture. Some of the movement still is: around the world grassroots activists and their organizations are fighting desperately to save this or that creature they love, this or that plant or fungi, … Continue reading Open Letter to Reclaim Environmentalism

We can’t have it all…

Mike Stasse at Damn the Matrix has posted a short analysis of the latest incarnation of the oft-repeated claim that we can generate all the electricity we “need” from a relatively small area of desert. Proponents of such claims rarely acknowledge that those deserts are habitat ― that is, home ― for many creatures. And … Continue reading We can’t have it all…
