Naomi Klein: Change the System, not the Climate

Naomi Klein is best known for her book: This Changes Everything, Capitalism versus the Climate. She wrote: … it’s not about carbon—it’s about capitalism… [and] we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better.

An important document towards building a better future is the Leap Manifesto. <> It calls for a restructuring of the Canadian economy and an end to the use of fossil fuels. The Leap Manifesto was initiated in the spring of 2015 at a two-day meeting in Toronto. Among those who wrote it were representatives from Canada’s Indigenous rights, social and food justice, environmental, faith-based and labor movements. And Naomi Klein gives a summary of the manifesto in this program.

Naomi Klein was recorded at the Grand Conference: Change the System, not the Climate! in August 2016 in Montreal, Canada. Date recorded 2016-08-13
