Description

Number one international and New York Times best-selling author Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, makes the case for a Green New Deal - explaining how bold climate action can be a blueprint for a just and thriving society.

For more than 20 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 center. In lucid, elegant dispatches from the front lines of contemporary natural disaster, she pens surging, indispensable essays for a wide public: prescient advisories and dire warnings of what future awaits us if we refuse to act, as well as hopeful glimpses of a far better future. 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.

These long-form essays show Klein at her most prophetic and philosophical, investigating the climate crisis not only as a profound political challenge, but as a spiritual and imaginative one as well. Delving into topics ranging from the clash between ecological time and our culture of “perpetual now”, to the soaring history of humans changing and evolving rapidly in the face of grave threats, to rising white supremacy and fortressed borders as a form of “climate barbarism”, this is a rousing call to action for a planet on the brink.

With reports spanning from the ghostly Great Barrier Reef, to the annual 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.

Another excellent thought provoking book by Naomi Klein

Interesting, well-researched, thoughtful, terrifying yet comforting. Highly recommend along with the rest of Klein’s books.

Inspirational. Naomi provides guidelines to mitigate climate change.

Grief and hope

Klein makes the clear case that an all-encompassing, deadly global change is here, and that it will get massively worse. We can cease to exist as a species, with black and brown people, as usual bearing the pain first and worst, but from which no one will escape. Alternatively, if we face facts and embrace justice (finally!) we can make a sustainable world.

Stark choice.

And we are out of time.

Very compelling work. Klein is doing God’s work

Very informative and a damning case anticipated for the Green New Deal. Eloquently articulated, On Fire is a damning piece of ART.

Important

I highly recommend this compilation and update of a series of essays by Naomi Klein. I have one comment about accuracy. She states in the essay about the Green New Deal that there is a small carbon tax being proposed that returns the revenue as a dividend. She says that this proposal is insufficient to address the climate crisis. Actually this is an increasing tax that would continue to increase annually until emissions are reduced by 90%, and indeed the revenue is returned to households equally. Most people, especially most low income people, would be money ahead. And there is a bill in the House now (November 2019) HR 763 the Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act with 70 co-sponsors including one Republican. I think in the end we need all of us to pull in the same direction. I’m for the Green New Deal and it’s many components. These essays paint a compelling picture of the need and the solutions. I think Klein is a very important voice in the discussion.

Getting this in print too!

There’s so much to this telling that needs highlighting, re-reading, sharing and discussion.

Gratitude for Naomi’s steadfast support of Indigenous people and people of Color in this critical time. For providing dialogue around intersectionality and immediate positive ways to work on it with heart.

Important Read

Naomi Klein makes a compelling case for the Green New Deal. Its no-nonsense, no sugar-coating, no-time-left message makes you sit up and take notice. The future is here, and it's not pretty. And she ties the climate crisis to so many other world and life situations, really made me think.
