Naomi Klein to explore climate change debate

27th November 2009

Naomi Klein has revealed that her next book will look at the debate over how best to reduce carbon emissions.

The author told the Canadian Press that climate change is a big issue for young people, just like the anti-corporate movement which she covered ten years ago in her debut work No Logo.

Klein said the climate change debate is split into two main camps - one which prefers market-based solutions to emissions such as carbon trading and one that believes richer countries should increase support for poorer countries.

'I'm hearing more and more young environmentalists saying "we think the way to solve this crisis is to leave fossil fuels in the ground",' she added.

The writer predicted that the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen is 'absolutely going to be a war' as delegates debate how to best address the problem.

Earlier this month, economist Stephen Levitt defended his new book SuperFreakonomics after it was criticised by some environmentalists. He told Telegraph TV that there ought to be a serious debate about potential solutions to climate change that do not necessarily involve cutting emissions.
