A review of Naomi Klein's book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.
The title echoes that of the small book of essays (This Changes Everything: Occupy Wall Street and the 99% Movement), put out by Yes magazine on the heels of the Occupy Wall Street movement, to which Klein also contributed. OWS represented a paradigm shift in the United States and internationally, capturing in its slogan of the 1% versus the 99% the magnitude of inequality that has accompanied globalized capitalism.
This inequality, ignored or under-emphasized by most mainstream environmental movements, stands front-and-center in Klein's new book as well as the book's website (http://thischangeseverything.org/), where the project continues and grows under the theme "To Change Everything, It Takes Everyone," which was also the slogan for the People's Climate March.
