In his New Year's Statement, Bob Avakian has called on people to "confront the fundamental reality that there is no future worth living for the masses of people and ultimately for humanity as a whole under this system..."

The Biden climate summit is a cruel imperialist deception, a slap in the face for anyone who cares about the fate of the planet. It ignores what science is telling us about the urgency of the environmental crisis and the scale of action needed. The emission cuts proposed amount to a measly drop in the carbon bucket.
