Week 8: Klein

Post by Yael on Tue May 22, 2018 1:20 pm

Naomi Klein begins her book by admitting that she used to ignore climate change. She then realized that the implications of climate change are great.
According to Klein, why is it so important to engage with the topic of climate change and take action in that field?

"All of us who live high consumer lifestyles, wherever we happen to reside, are, metaphorically, passengers on Flight 3925". Everyone is in danger; everyone is part of the problem; and certainly everyone could be part of the solution. We are at the brink of an apocalypse, yet we continue to look away, or look with one eye open as Naomi Klein puts it. In her book 'This Changes Everything', she is urgently calling for everyone's engagement in solutions for climate change. If we continue living by our current ways, it is ensured that we won't be living much longer. Climate changes has not received adequate attention from leaders around the world, so Klein calls for a grass-root mass movements to take action. Klein says, "the urgency of the climate crisis could form the basis of a powerful mass movement, one that would weave all these seemingly disparate issues into a coherent narrative about how to protect humanity from the ravages of both a savagely unjust economic system and a destabilised climate system", by writing this book she is providing a catalyst towards solutions. The first step of the solution according to Klein is to stop looking away.

Klein does not dig into details about why it is very urgent to look after climate change because she expects that people already know how huge is this problem. She focuses on organizing a mass movement for climate action that changes the unjust economic system
