Synopsis

Naomi Klein, author of the #1 international bestsellers, The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, returns with This Changes Everything, a must-read on how the climate crisis needs to spur transformational political change



Forget everything you think you know about global warming. It's not about carbon - it's about capitalism. The good news is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better.



In her most provocative book yet, Naomi Klein, author of the global bestsellers The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, tackles the most profound threat humanity has ever faced: the war our economic model is waging against life on earth.



Klein exposes the myths that are clouding the climate debate.



You have been told the market will save us, when in fact the addiction to profit and growth is digging us in deeper every day. You have been told it's impossible to get off fossil fuels when in fact we know exactly how to do it - it just requires breaking every rule in the "free-market" playbook: reining in corporate power, rebuilding local economies and reclaiming our democracies.



You have also been told that humanity is too greedy and selfish to rise to this challenge. In fact, all around the world, the fight back for the next economy is already succeeding in ways both surprising and inspiring.



Climate change, Klein argues, is a civilizational wake-up call, a powerful message delivered in the language of fires, floods, storms, and droughts. Confronting it is no longer about changing the light bulbs. It's about changing the world - before the world changes so drastically that no one is safe.



Either we leap - or we sink.



Once a decade, Naomi Klein writes a book that redefines its era. No Logo did so for globalization. The Shock Doctrine changed the way we think about austerity. This Changes Everything is about to upend the debate about the stormy era already upon us.

Customer Reviews

Salutary and frequently depressing, as Naomi Klein spells out in detail how the rich and greedy are prepared to ignore everyone and everything else in their quest for even more cash in the bank. It's clear now that they are not just gambling with our futures, but damning us. And our politicians are up to their necks in it. We MUST turn this around, but when fortresses and private armies are being accumulated, drawbridges raised - are we prepared to take our lives in our hands? Or are we just going to switch channels, grab a beer and ignore it all? I agree with the title - This Changes Everything - or at least should, and the evidence is clear, well-argued and referenced, and well written.

This is essential reading for all those of interested in climate change and politics. The book is thoroughly researched, well argued and very readable. Ms Klein makes a very convincing case that we can turn this mess around:- Whether we will, though, is another matter entirely. Thoroughly recommended reading.
