Capitalism, not carbon, is the driving force behind global warming. The fact that we can use this existential crisis to transform distorted economic systems and build a fundamentally reformed system gives us comfort.
We've been repeatedly told that the market will save us, but markets addicted to profit and growth are pushing us into dire straits. We've been repeatedly told that it's impossible to get away from fossil fuels, but in reality, we know clearly how to get away from them.
By breaking all the principles in the "Free Market" strategy book, controlling the exercise of power by companies, rebuilding the local economy, and retaking our democracy, we can get away from fossil fuels.
It has also been repeatedly said that humans cannot unite their efforts to meet these challenges because they are selfish and greedy. However, the struggle against indiscriminate collection and building new economies is now achieving surprising and exhilarating results worldwide.
Naomi Klein argues that climate change is a wake-up call to civilization and a powerful message in the form of wildfires, floods, storms, and droughts. We can no longer stop climate change by turning light bulbs into efficient ones. We need to change the world. First, we must change the world before it changes rapidly and puts us all in dangerous situations. We will be flooded if we don't take the leap forward now.
Naomi Klein's 『This Changes Everything』 contains the most intense message that can be conveyed in the book. Even though climate change is real and overflowing with evidence and data, conspiracy theories are constantly being raised, and they rely on conspiracy theories to scold the politics and economy of greed that only benefit them.
