eBook Available here
The first part of this book gives a lucid explanation of the science of global warming and climate change. Drawing on a wide range of scientific findings, with specific references, Professor Klein presents stark scenarios for the future. Part 1 ends by explaining that technological solutions already exist, and the only barriers to implementation are political.
The second part of the book clarifies and illuminates the role of capitalism in creating and perpetuating the climate crisis and related dangers. Clear evidence and compelling arguments are presented to demonstrate the impossibility of adequately addressing the climate crisis within the framework of capitalism.
The exposition is interspersed throughout with the artwork of political cartoonist, Stephanie McMillan. Her cartoons clarify and condense the main ideas, and they add counterbalance and humor to the surrounding text. The book ends with a call to action together with guidelines to begin organizing for the overthrow of capitalism.
