Canadian author and activist Naomi Klein presents her new book, This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.
Klein argues that climate change cannot be addressed under the dominant form of capitalism in which free market forces are seen as capable of addressing most of society’s problems. On the contrary, “market fundamentalism” encourages profligate consumption and the emergence of mega-corporations and trade agreements that are hostile to the environment. Will capitalism destroy the world as we know it? Has it already?
