THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING: CAPITALISM VS. THE CLIMATE by Naomi Klein (KnopfCanada), 576 pages, $36.95 cloth. Rating: NNNNN
I’ll admit I silently rejoiced when I found out Naomi Klein was taking on climate change. You know if this woman tackles a subject, she’s going to skewer the shit out of anyone screwing humanity in the shadows. And she does, nailing everyone from our oil-slicked politicians and green billionaire messiahs all the way to the green movement itself (and its behind-the-scenes sellouts), leaving the reader slack-jawed and spellbound.
The odds may be stacked against her social-justice-steeped Marshall Plan to save the earth, but so too, argues Klein, were the odds of abolishing slavery. This Changes Everything is guaranteed to inspire a whole generation to join the resistance movement and push for change from a place of love for the only planet we’ve got.
