This Changes Everything

Naomi Klein's book 'This Changes Everything'
This Changes Everything; "Naomi Klein didn't think climate change was her issue but when she realised the close link between environmental destruction and inequality, everything changed. In Naomi's home country, the Canadian government granted virtual free rein to companies seeking oil in Alberta's tar sands, creating a boom town in Fort McMurray. Like large numbers of activists across the world, the indigenous population in Alberta protested the environmental damage. How can we connect the dots among movements around the world to tackle climate change and inequality at the same time? "
Naomi Klein describes that; Industrialized economies need to stop growing in order to avoid the worst of climate change.....

Naomi Klein; "The carbon record does not lie .... emissions are still rising; gases will trap heat for generations to come, creating a world that is hotter, colder, wetter, thirstier, hungrier, angrier. So if there is any hope of reversing these trends, glimpses won't cut it; we will need the climate revolution playing on repeat, all day, everywhere."
