The influential Canadian author Naomi Klein has an interesting new book out which I recommend to my readers. In This Changes Everything Klein synthesises her anti-globalisation political doctrine with climate change in order to produce a blueprint of a society quite alien to that which we are accustomed in the UK. Read Klein to see the direction which the Climate debate might take over the coming years. That the first and third parts of her book are based upon many faulty premises shouldn’t surprise us. What is surprising are some of the drastic remedies which Klein openly proposes, such as a 3 day working week and the further levelling down of wages across the developed world. I don’t think I have read a book in recent years with which I have at once disagreed (most of parts one and three) and yet agreed (much of part two, in particular chapters 7 and 8).
