WGBHForum Dec 11, 2018
Communities around the world are working on solutions to make our buildings, streets and infrastructure resilient to more frequent storms and sea level rise associated with climate change. Very few, however, want to talk about the sensitive topic of managed retreat (commonly known as climate migration). How do you even begin talking about uprooting entire communities? Who will pay for it? Who makes these decisions?
The BSA Foundation hosts a conversation that starts to address these questions.
Naomi Klein: The (Burning) Case For A Green New Deal
WGBHForum Premiered Oct 16, 2019
Naomi Klein is an award-winning, internationally bestselling author and journalist. For two decades she has chronicled the economic war waged on people and the planet. Harvard Book Store describes Klein as, “an unapologetic champion of a sweeping environmental agenda with justice at its center. In lucid, elegant dispatches from the frontlines of contemporary natural disaster, she pens surging, indispensable essays for a wide public.”
Her latest book, On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal gathers more than a decade of her writing and pairs it with new material on the high stakes of our immediate political and economic choices.
Klein is joined by Juliet B. Schor, Boston College professor and former Guggenheim fellow. This event was co-sponsored by 350 Mass, Cambridge Forum, The Intercept, The Leap, and Sunrise Movement.
