Naomi Klein: This Changes Everything - Capitalism vs. The Climate

THU, OCT 16, 2014 (1:12:35)

In her provocative book, This Changes Everything, Naomi Klein argues that carbon is not the ultimate cause of climate change; the real enemy is capitalism. She provides a far-reaching explanation of why the climate crisis challenges us to abandon the core “free market” ideology of our time, restructure the global economy, and remake our political systems. Who benefits from the status quo? How deeply are the current power structures embedded in our political economy? How difficult will it be change them?
