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.

 

Published in the US, UK and Canada on September 17, 2019, 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.

VIDEO: Coronavirus Capitalism — and How to Beat It

March 16, 2020
By Naomi Klein

I’ve spent two decades studying the transformations that take place under the cover of disaster. I’ve learned that one thing we can count on is this: During moments of cataclysmic change, the previously unthinkable suddenly becomes reality. In recent decades, that change has mainly been for the worst — but this has not always been the case. And it need not continue to be in the future.

How the Transformative Power of Solidarity Will Beat Trump

It made for a tough juxtaposition. Late Monday night, CBS News reported that Bernie Sanders had just done exactly what many critics have long called on him to do: He asked his supporters to dial back the personal attacks on rivals in the Democratic primary and focus on substantial policy differences.

“We need a serious debate in this country on issues,” Sanders said. “We don’t need to demonize people who may disagree with us. … I appeal to my supporters: Please, engage in civil discourse.” He pointed out (rightly) that “we’re not the only campaign that does it. Other people act that way as well.” But he added, “I would appeal to everybody: Have a debate on the issues. We can disagree with each other without being disagreeable, without being hateful.”
