Naomi Klein to Degrowth Conference: Climate Change Can Deliver ‘People’s Shock’
Status quo is not an option if we are to rein in runaway emissions, This Changes Everything author says in address to conference

I don’t wish to sound pessimistic, but I am: this gesture is going to fail.

Note: I already criticized Klein for the excessive price of the book. It will be six months before I can afford a second hand copy at Amazon.

Why not simple make the book public domain day one? cost, zero? Answer, these celebrities can make a lot of money on their books, and in any case their publishers decide this, not the authors.

We have outlined a way to publish books without a big publisher, and will outline this again soon.

Degrowth requires a revolutionary effort to move beyond capitalism, and that’s implied but apparently not intended by Klein’s rhetoric.
