If humankind doesn’t act now to repair decades of exploitation and pollution of the planet, there may soon be no planet left at all.
Writing over the past decade, journalist and campaigner Naomi Klein states the case for total transformation of our economy, society, and mentality. The road to a “Green New Deal” will be a hard one, but it might just be the only chance we have.
