On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal

“Naomi Klein is a precious gift: every time I read her words, my heart leaps from sadness and anger to ACTION…Everything we love is at stake now: these writings are our best and brightest hope.” – Emma Thompson

 

The climate crisis has moved from a future threat to a burning emergency. The Green New Deal is a vision for transforming our economies to battle climate breakdown and rampant inequality at the same time. Naomi argues that only this kind of bold, roots-up action will rouse us to fight for our lives while there is still time.

 

On Fire was an instant New York Times bestseller and was serialized in The Guardian UK and in the Covering Climate Now news syndicate worldwide.  It is now available in paperback!

How Not to Lose the Lockdown Generation

August 06, 2020
By Naomi Klein

Lessons from the New Deal point the way forward in the era of Covid-19.

PICTURE THIS: You live in rural Arkansas and tragedy strikes. A family member has fallen ill with that contagious respiratory illness that has already killed so many — but you don’t have enough space in your small home to quarantine them in a room of their own. Your relative’s case doesn’t appear to be life-threatening, but you are terrified that their persistent cough will spread the illness to more vulnerable family members. You call the local public health authority to see if there is room in local hospitals, and they explain that they are all stretched too thin with emergency cases. There are private facilities, but you can’t afford those.

Screen New Deal

May 08, 2020
By Naomi Klein

Under cover of mass death, Andrew Cuomo calls in the billionaires to build a high tech dystopia….

It has taken some time to gel, but something resembling a coherent Pandemic Shock Doctrine is beginning to emerge. Call it the “Screen New Deal.” Far more high-tech than anything we have seen during previous disasters, the future that is being rushed into being as the bodies still pile up treats our past weeks of physical isolation not as a painful necessity to save lives, but as a living laboratory for a permanent — and highly profitable — no-touch future.
