Murderous Global Heat Waves Ravage the Planet…Without Revolution, the Capitalist Death Grip Will Bake Us Alive

The Environmental Writing Group

From Central America to the Mediterranean countries of Europe and North Africa… from India to the Middle East, and the U.S. to Mexico… much of the planet is in the grip of deadly heat waves.
