While those who benefit from fossil capitalism might choose to ignore climate change, the science is conclusive: to avoid irreversible climate collapse, the burning of all fossil fuels will have to end in the next decade. People’s Power provides a persuasive critique of a market-led transition to renewable energy. It surveys the early development of the electric grid in the United States, telling the story of battles for public control over power during the Great Depression. This history frames accounts of contemporary campaigns, in both the United States and Europe, that eschew market fundamentalism and sclerotic state power in favor of energy that is green, democratically managed and equitably shared.
