A #1 bestseller, winner of the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Non-Fiction, and Naomi Klein’s most important book yet—about the economic drivers that are warming our planet and how the climate crisis can yet spur economic, cultural and political transformation.

Klein argues that our current growth-based economic model is waging war on the life support systems of our planet. Using phenomenal research, she lays out why climate change is not an “issue”—it is a civilizational wake-up call, a powerful message delivered in the language of fires, floods, storms and droughts. Klein attacks the dominant economic policies of deregulated capitalism and endless resource extraction, and brilliantly identifies the threads that connect our failed responses to the crisis—from hard-core climate deniers to celebrity billionaires with messiah complexes, to the reckless quest to engineer the planet--and she reveals how the “Big Green” environmental organizations may be hurting more than helping. She argues that we urgently need an entirely new model of human progress and shows why climate change—with its full economic and moral implications understood—is the most powerful weapon we have ever had in the fight for equality and social justice. Tracing the rise of a bold new resistance movement against extreme energy, she highlights the real solutions emerging in the rubble of our failed systems—solutions that require us to break virtually every rule in the free-market playbook. The climate change debate is about to get a lot hotter.
