This introduction presents an overview of key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book explains that, as species enters the Anthropocene which can no longer continue to destructively enact Western white' patriarchal capitalist society's conceptualization of a clear boundary between the ideological and the material, the social and the environmental, the human and the non-human, the observer and the observed, the word and the flesh. With the advent of anthropogenic global climate change (GCC) and the concurring acts of ecological-social destruction, the vast conceptual veil perpetuating society's ultimate illusion that the fate of the human species is somehow separate from the fate of the Earth is finally tearing. The book discusses that through the use of intersectional theory and analyses that have sought to not only engage with the core social constructions of identity represented by race, ethnicity, social class, gender, sexuality, and nationality. It also focuses on acts of political intervention and intersectional praxis.
