No.1 international and New York Times bestselling author Naomi Klein makes the case for a Green New Deal
For more than twenty years, Naomi Klein has been the foremost chronicler of the economic war waged on both people and planet - and an unapologetic champion of a sweeping environmental agenda with justice at its centre. On Fire- The Burning Case for a Green New Deal gathers for the first time more than a decade of her impassioned writing, and pairs it with new material on the staggeringly high stakes of our immediate political and economic choices.
With reports spanning from the ghostly Great Barrier Reef to the smoke-choked skies of the Pacific Northwest, to post-hurricane Puerto Rico, to a Vatican attempting an unprecedented 'ecological conversion', Klein makes the case that we will rise to the existential challenge of climate change only if we are willing to transform the systems that produced this crisis.
An expansive, far-ranging exploration that sees the battle for a greener world as indistinguishable from the fight for our lives, On Fire captures the burning urgency of the climate crisis, as well as the fiery energy of a rising political movement demanding a catalytic Green New Deal.
