This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs the Climate by Naomi Klein

21913812In This Changes Everything: Capitalism Vs the Climate, Klein provides a thought provoking, and in depth look, at climate change and that in order to really bring about change developed countries may need to readjust their economic ideologies. This work takes a look at climate change science, climate change deniers, communities, people, and other species impacted by dirty energy, and how money, trade laws, and timing play into it all. While an interesting and well researched read it is not a light summer pick-me-up. However, it does build up to a more hopeful tone (hope with caution, but hope none the less), with stories of ground up movements making actual impacts, people taking the time to defend their rights, and homeowners fighting to keep things like fracking away from where they live (including one Exxon CEO who joined a neighborhood lawsuit, claiming a concern for property values).
