How to Change Everything: The Young Human’s Guide to Protecting the Planet and Each Other

“Naomi Klein’s work has always moved and guided me. She is the great chronicler of our age of climate emergency, an inspirer of generations” – Greta Thunberg

 

Young people are fighting for their right to a future on a really basic level. That is at the heart of the climate strikes: the right to a future that is more than fleeing from a series of disasters. The right to a future is also what young people are fighting for when they stand up for Black lives and against police violence. And they are also fighting for their right to a future when they call for gun control that will protect them from shootings at their schools. The right to a future free from violence and unending disasters connects all of these movements.  Young activists are demanding large-scale, systemic changes in how we live, work, consume resources, and interact with the natural world and with each other. When it comes to working for a cause, young activists are ready and willing to use all the tools they can get their hands on, from voting (for those who are old enough) and civil lawsuits to art and gardening. This book is a celebration of their creativity and courage.

Stuck in the Smoke as Billionaires Blast Off

July 23, 2021
By Naomi Klein

 

Climate inaction was never really about denial. Rich countries just thought poorer countries would bear the brunt of the crisis.

MANY PEOPLE HERE think they are safe from climate change, the journalist from a German newspaper explained to me. They don’t see it as an immediate threat, like Covid-19. They see the Greens as scolds who want to take away their cheap holidays. “What do you have to say to them?”

The question came via video call in late June, and I was, at that very moment, pickled in my non-air-conditioned home, gripped by a heatwave that would, before the week was done, kill about 500 people in British Columbia, Canada, and cook perhaps a billion marine creatures on scorching shorelines. Over the years, I have faced many such “why should I care” questions, and I usually try to reach for some kind of moral argument about our responsibility to fellow humans even when we aren’t immediately impacted. But because I was far too hot and angry for high-mindedness, what I had to say instead was “Give it a minute.”

 

Intercepted: Stealing Children to Steal the Land

June 16, 2021
By Naomi Klein

 

LAST MONTH, the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation uncovered a mass grave of 215 children on the grounds of a former residential school in British Columbia, Canada.

On Intercepted: Naomi Klein speaks with residential school survivor Doreen Manuel and her niece Kanahus Manuel about the horrors of residential schools and the relationship between stolen children and stolen land. Doreen’s father, George Manuel, was a survivor of the Kamloops Indian Residential School, where unmarked graves of children as young as 3 years old were found. Kanahus’s father, Arthur Manuel, was also a survivor of the Kamloops residential school. This intergenerational conversation goes deep on how the evils of the Kamloops school, and others like it, have reverberated through a century of Manuels, an experience shared by so many Indigenous families, and the Manuel family’s decades long fight to reclaim stolen land.

Warning: This episode contains highly distressing material. If you are a former residential school student in distress, or need help, contact the 24-hour Indian Residential Schools Crisis Line: 1-866-925-4419.
