A review of Naomi Klein's book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.



The title echoes that of the small book of essays (This Changes Everything: Occupy Wall Street and the 99% Movement), put out by Yes magazine on the heels of the Occupy Wall Street movement, to which Klein also contributed. OWS represented a paradigm shift in the United States and internationally, capturing in its slogan of the 1% versus the 99% the magnitude of inequality that has accompanied globalized capitalism.

This inequality, ignored or under-emphasized by most mainstream environmental movements, stands front-and-center in Klein's new book as well as the book's website (, where the project continues and grows under the theme "To Change Everything, It Takes Everyone," which was also the slogan for the People's Climate March.
