“This may be the first truly honest book ever written about climate change.” (Bryan Walsh Time)
"The most momentous and contentious environmental book since Silent Spring.” (Rob Nixon The New York Times Book Review)
"This is the best book about climate change in a very long time—in large part because it's about much more. It sets the most important crisis in human history in the context of our other ongoing traumas, reminding us just how much the powers-that-be depend on the power of coal, gas and oil. And that in turn should give us hope, because it means the fight for a just world is the same as the fight for a livable one." (Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and co-founder of 350.org)
“This Changes Everything is the work book for . . . [a] new, more assertive, more powerful environmental movement.” (Mark Bittman)
"Naomi Klein applies her fine, fierce, and meticulous mind to the greatest, most urgent questions of our times. . . . I count her among the most inspirational political thinkers in the world today." (Arundhati Roy, author of The God of Small Things and Capitalism: A Ghost Story)
“Naomi Klein is a genius. She has done for politics what Jared Diamond did for the study of human history. She skillfully blends politics, economics and history and distills out simple and powerful truths with universal applicability.” (Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.)
“[A]robust new polemic. . . . Drawing on an impressive volume of research, Ms. Klein savages the idea that we will be saved by new technologies or by an incremental shift away from fossil fuels: Both approaches, she argues, are forms of denial. . . . Ms. Klein is aware of the intractability of the problems she describes, but she manages optimism nonetheless.” (Nathaniel Rich The New York Times)
"Klein is a brave and passionate writer who always deserves to be heard, and this is a powerful and urgent book." (John Gray The Observer (UK))
“If global warming is a worldwide wake-up call, we’re all pretty heavy sleepers. . . . We haven't made significant progress, Klein argues, because we've been expecting solutions from the very same institutions that created the problem in the first place. . . . Klein's sharp analysis makes a compelling case that a mass awakening is part of the answer.” (Chris Bentley The Chicago Tribune)
“Gripping and dramatic. . . . [Klein] writes of a decisive battle for the fate of the earth in which we either take back control of the planet from the capitalists who are destroying it or watch it all burn.” (Roy Scranton Rolling Stone)

I am shocked by the people who find Klein's prattle to be so meaningful, and timely. Global warming has been an understood science since the 1960s. While the extremist global warming deniers have been made to be a political force by the fossil fuel industry, the greater problem comes from the tragedy-of-the-commons. Almost no one wants to make the sacrifices needed. Blaming Capitalism won't help.
I hope that Naomi Klein discovers Ecological Economics and brings it to her readers. Ecological Economics may have shades of Capitalism in it. But beauty is in the eve of the beholder, we can redefine capitalism.
I would have given this book one star but I actually don't want to piss-off other environmentalists. We need to proceed with maximum speed. Capitalism need not be a monolith, it can be a transitional tool. But define what you want. We get to define the future. Reading a book or articles on Ecological Economics would be much more productive than this book.
