WATCH: Naomi Klein on How Capitalism Is Destroying Our Fragile Climate

A special discussion on how to tackle the most profound threat humanity has ever faced.


In This Changes Everything, her first new book in seven years, Naomi Klein, author of the global #1 bestsellers The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, tackles the most profound threat humanity has ever faced: the war our economic model is waging against life on earth.

Climate change, Klein 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 light bulbs. It’s about changing the world. We have 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.

For those of you who missed the sold-out event at The New School on September 18, you can now watch Klein speak about the book, followed by a discussion with special guests about the call to engage fundamentally with the issue of climate change.

Special Guests:
Bill McKibben, activist and co-founder,
Clayton Thomas-Muller, organizer, facilitator, public speaker and writer on environmental justice and indigenous rights
Estela Vasquez, Executive Vice President SEIU Local 1199
Michael Leon Guerrero, Climate Justice Alliance
Esperanza Martinez, Acción Ecológica

This event was sponsored by The Nation Institute, The Nation, and The New School for Public Engagement as a part of the 10th Anniversary partnership celebration and Climate Action Week at The New School in association with The Working World and
