With each passing year, it becomes increasingly difficult to deny that the most pressing issue of the twenty-first century will be that of climate change, which is inescapably caught up with race, class, gender, and a range of additional social issues and power structures.
We take our title from—and in part build the year’s activities around—the publication of arguably the most significant book so far on climate change, Canadian writer and activist Naomi Klein’s "This Changes Everything – Capitalism versus the Climate," a New York Times bestseller and winner of the 2014 Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction.
