In the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump I am especially happy to contribute to Jacobin Magazine, the leading socialist magazine in the US. This one’s about the US state of West Virginia and it’s dependency on the coal mining industry, resulting in decades of pollution and rising unemployment. What about a future that’s based on a diversified economy powered by clean energy? Sounds good to me!
