Book review:

This Changes Everything

Naomi Klein/Knopf Canada

Naomi Klein’s timely and accessible new book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, takes on unregulated capitalism as the major barrier to climate progress. After ignoring climate scientists’ warnings for more than 20 years, Klein argues, we’ve shut down options for incremental changes to avert catastrophic global warning. While Klein doesn’t delve into climate science itself, she paints a convincing picture of the immorality of inaction. The solution? Reign in corporate power and rebuild local economies.
