This Changes Everything

by Naomi Klein

This Changes Everything

Naomi Klein

Overview

For the past couple of decades we have watched as the climate of Earth changes, slowly but surely making our environment less hospitable – yet we have done little about it. Why is such an almighty threat to human existence being handled with such inertia?

Renowned journalist, filmmaker, and activist Naomi Klein has increasingly focused on this inaction in the face of environmental disaster. In this book, Klein outlines how our growth-driven economic system is fundamentally incompatible with the planet's natural limits.

Since its publication in 2014, the progressive vision outlined in This Changes Everything has been absorbed into mainstream discourse. Yet beyond a bleak accounting of the problem, Klein draws on the struggles and triumphs of modern history to point the way towards a more sustainable, healthy, and equitable future.

"Our economy is at war with many forms of life on Earth, including human life. What the climate needs to avoid collapse is a contraction in humanity's use of resources; what our economic model demands to avoid collapse is unfettered expansion."
