This changes everything


Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything entered into my consciousness at a time when frankly I didn’t consider global warming to be my problem. I have to be frank with you – I still don’t think it is. And like me, there are millions of educated folks who find it, as Klein puts it,  ‘easier to deny reality than to allow our worldview to be shattered, a fact that was as true of diehard Stalinists at the height of the purges, as of libertarian climate deniers today.’

Climate change and the future of our planet has been at the periphery of my thought processes.
