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.

Latest Pieces

The realism of Bernie Sanders’ climate policy

November 25, 2019
By Naomi Klein and Sivan Kartha
As Bernie Sanders brings his plans for a Green New Deal to Iowa, one part is proving most resonant: the idea that, as our economy rapidly shifts to renewable energy, power companies should be publicly owned and controlled, and the biggest polluters should help underwrite the costs.

Interestingly, this is the part of the Sanders plan, which builds on the resolution introduced by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts, that has received the most pushback from media commentators — who have been quick to dismiss public ownership over renewables as impractical and radical.

Forged in Fire: California’s Lessons for a Green New Deal

November 7, 2019
By Naomi Klein
We were just taking pictures. Of the ash, stray bricks, and weeds. Of twisted metal and charred patio furniture. Of the pine trees still standing on the edge of the lots, their towering trunks now charcoal black. Of the lonely white brick fireplace in the middle of it all, the only surviving structure, metal pokers hanging expectantly by the grate.

“Get the hell off my property!”

The words came bellowing from a burly man who had just pulled up to the pile of ash that once was his home in Paradise, California. As he shouted a litany of complaints, it became clear that his rage wasn’t only reserved for us trespassers — and there have been plenty who have gone to Paradise to gaze at the eerie emptiness where a thriving community once stood, before it was decimated by California’s deadliest fire one year ago.
