Description

In This Changes Everything Naomi Klein argues that climate change isn’t just another issue to be neatly filed between taxes and health care. It’s an alarm that calls us to fix an economic system that is already failing us in many ways. Klein meticulously builds the case for how massively reducing our greenhouse emissions is our best chance to simultaneously reduce gaping inequalities, re-imagine our broken democracies, and rebuild our gutted local economies. She exposes the ideological desperation of the climate-change deniers, the messianic delusions of the would-be geoengineers, and the tragic defeatism of too many mainstream green initiatives. And she demonstrates precisely why the market does not - and cannot - fix the climate crisis, but will instead make things worse, with ever more extreme and ecologically damaging extraction methods, accompanied by rampant disaster capitalism.

Klein argues that the changes to our relationship with nature and one another that are required to respond to the climate crisis humanely should not be viewed as grim penance, but rather as a kind of gift - a catalyst to transform broken economic and cultural priorities and to heal long-festering historical wounds. And she documents the inspiring movements that have already begun this process: communities that are not just refusing to be sites of further fossil fuel extraction but are building the next, regeneration-based economies right now.

Can we pull off these changes in time? Nothing is certain. Nothing except that climate change changes everything. And for a very brief time, the nature of that change is still up to us.

Climate change through a social policy lens

Naomi Klein does a great job expressing secondary factors associated with climate change, indigenous rights, socialist policies like universal basic income, universal education and healthcare. Thought the section on indigenous rights was particularly well done. The first section of the book was a little difficult to get through as it revolves around scare tactic and anecdotes to punctuate the need for climate action, sort of easy to see through. Would rather have had a more detailed science or even economic approach to discussing the need for climate action. All in all a great listen if you’re interested in learning about climate change through a social policy lens, but if you’re looking for a scientific discussion probably best served elsewhere.

Passionate and wishful

Ms Klein has produced a highly charged, passionate statement for immediate action to stem climate change. Filled with first hand anecdotes and quotes from both sides of the debate with a litany of eco-crimes committed by the fossil fuel industry. That said, she glosses over the science. Condemns all efforts to adjust to and mitigate the impacts of climate change. Dismisses non-carbon emitting energy sources such as nuclear power. Derides geo-engineering by focusing solely on the worst case form (atmospheric sulphate seeding) while totally ignoring other more benign but equally effective methods. States as fact that current renewables (wind and solar) can completely replace fossil fuels yet fails to address the fact that the metals needed to construct the motors, power grid and batteries DOES NOT EXIST, either in current circulation (metals being mined or scrap metal) nor in known but undeveloped mineral deposits. Her solution lies in grassroots activism to enact world change. If current theories on the imminence (less than a decade away) of a tipping point are to be believed, then I’ll place my hopes on humanity’s ability to adjust and innovate.

Great Book on climate change and it’s roots

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audio book. It gave me so much insight into the battle between capitalism and climate change that’s been happening for so long. If you want to get a good introduction into topics like how free trade is impacting the climate change in a negative way, how treaty violations and the indigenous communities around the globe are struggling to battle multibillion dollar oil and natural gas companies who want to deplete the land, and how local groups can standup to big conglomerates and other areas this is the book for you!

Worth the read

This book is certainly hard on the moral at first, stating the numerous ways that climate is compromised. Although, Klein goes on to describe with efficacity the problems of capitalism and the errors that brought us were we are today. This book will help you to develop your understanding of the crisis and will enlight you as of what is necessary to change the curse of this tangent.

Repetitive and boring

This book is listed as 20 hours long. I made it thru 5 hours, but I couldn’t do any more. It is like being at a party and being lectured by the most pompous person about how the world is wrong. There are some valid points made, but the delivery is mind numbing. I like to listen while driving or walking. The author likes to use stats as arguments and I find the audio format does not support that type of delivery. This is a book that is likely better read.

Still relevant

Written more than 5 years ago, still 100% relevant. This book depicts many perspectives to understand and mitigate the problem
