16 Nov This Changes Everything
“This Changes Everything” (2014) is more than a book. It’s also a film (directed by Avi Lewis) and an engagement project, all based around Naomi Klein’s fourth book. This non-fiction bestseller shifts the focus from Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” (2006) emphasis on carbon emissions to the larger questions regarding climate change. Arundhati Roy, author of “The God of Small Things”, declares the book has “changed the terms of the debate” and actress Charlize Theron praises the author’s call to “immediate action”.
Naomi Klein is a Canadian award-winning journalist and author that has published three other books so far: “No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies” (1999), “Fences and Windows” (2002), The Shock Doctrine: “The Rise of Disaster Capitalism” (2007). She is also a social activist and filmmaker known for political analysis and criticism of globalization and capitalism. Klein is also a contributing editor for “Harper’s” magazine and a reporter for “Rolling Stone”.
