This changes everything : capitalism vs. the climate
Unabridged ; CD.
"Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it's not about carbon--it's about capitalism. The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform out failed economic system and build something radically better. This book tackles the most profound threat humanity has ever faced--the war our economic model is waging against life on earth--and exposes the myths that are clouding the climate debate. We have been told the market will save us when in fact the addiction to profit and growth is digging us in deeper every day. We have been told it's impossible to get off fossil fuels when in fact we know exactly how to do it--it just requires breaking every rule in the "free market" playbook: reining in corporate power, rebuilding local economies, and reclaiming our democracies. We have also been told that humanity is too greedy and selfish to rise to this challenge. In fact, all around the world, the fight for the next economy and against reckless extraction is already succeeding in ways both surprising and inspiring. Climate change, the author argues, is a civilizational wake-up call, a powerful message delivered in the language of fires, floods, storms, and droughts. Confronting it is no longer about changing the lightbulbs. It's about changing the world--before the world changes so drastically that no one is safe. Either we leap--or we sink."--Container.
