This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate by Naomi Klein

Its an attention-grabbing book with an attention-grabbing title. And cover. And grabbing attention is what its all about. Because the contents of this book need and deserve attention.
Having already established herself with No Logo and The Shock Doctrine, Naomi Klein is back and this time her sights are set on the global issue of climate change.
Filled with anecdotal accounts and quotes, facts and figures, footnotes, and a significant endnotes section, this book serves as an introduction to anything you might have missed in the last fifty years on the developing awareness that our actions as a species are significantly impacting the ecosystems of the planet that supports us what has been, is being, and has yet to be done that damages it (and ourselves), and what people the world over are discovering they can do about it.
At times grim and depressing, it can make it hard to resist the urge to either laugh or weep at the folly of humankind, and a sense of fatalism can start to sink in in parts. But persist and you will find so much to inspire and uplift you, and to rekindle any faith in the human spirit you might have.
If you have never heard of Blockadia or the Cowboy and Indian Alliance, and / or you have a stake in the future of life on Earth, then this should serve as a good wakeup call to rouse you from any apathy that may discourage you from seeing a way out of the morass our kind has made for ourselves and our fellow living things.
It may surprise you and change your attitude towards certain things, as I know it did for me. It may even change your life, and the lives of us all, if enough of the right people notice and take heed of its messages. If I can offer one piece of advice to my species it is this give this your attention!
