New Yorker hosts climate change extremist who advocates for 'intelligent sabotage'

The New Yorker hosted environmental activist and professor Andreas Malm on their podcast where he promoted "intelligent sabotage" and property damage as a way to stop climate change.

"Andreas Malm insists that the environmental movement rethink its roots in nonviolence and instead embrace ‘intelligent sabotage,’" the description of the interview states.

In the podcast, Malm, who is a professor from Lund University, emphasized "a call for escalation, a call for the movement to diversify its tactics and move away from an exclusive focus on polite, gentle and perfectly peaceful civil disobedience."

"I am recommending that the movement continues with mass action and civil disobedience, but also opens up for property destruction," Malm said.

While Malm, who is a human ecology professor at Lund University does not dismiss peaceful demonstrations and does not condone hurting people, he did emphasize that destroying private property would not be "morally illegitimate."
