[I am grateful to the editors for inviting me to reply to Paul Burkett's criticisms of my work, and also to Burkett himself for his systematic and scholarly attention. So far as I can tell, Burkett and I are in close agreement on some very important issues: that ecological degradation is of central importance politically, that its primary cause is the dynamics of specifically capitalist social and economic relations (not ‘industrialism’, ‘greed’, ‘modernity’, ‘anthropocentrism’, ‘science’, or whatever), that Marx's and Engels's materialist view of history is indispensable for any adequate theoretical grasp of our current predicament, that scientific and technical innovation are shaped by capitalist class relations, that the much vaunted aspiration to ‘sustainability’ is unachievable short of a fundamental and emancipatory transformation of social and economic life, and so on., I am grateful to the editors for inviting me to reply to Paul Burkett's criticisms of my work, and also to Burkett himself for his systematic and scholarly attention.
