Cambridge Forum welcomes welcomes NAOMI KLEIN—award-winning, internationally bestselling author and journalist—for a discussion of her latest book, On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal explaining how bold climate action can be a blueprint for a just and thriving society. She will be joined by JULIET B. SCHOR, Professor of Sociology at Boston College. This event is co-sponsored by Harvard Book Store, 350 Mass, The Intercept, The Leap, and Sunrise.
With reports spanning from the ghostly Great Barrier Reef, to the annual smoke-choked skies of the Pacific Northwest, to post-hurricane Puerto Rico, to a Vatican attempting an unprecedented “ecological conversion,” Naomi Klein makes the case that we will rise to the existential challenge of climate change only if we are willing to transform the systems that produced this crisis.
An expansive, far-ranging exploration that sees the battle for a greener world as indistinguishable from the fight for our lives, On Fire captures the burning urgency of the climate crisis, as well as the fiery energy of a rising political movement demanding a catalytic Green New Deal.
