Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine and This Changes Everything, isn’t exactly the most uplifting of public thinkers, but it makes sense: Her primary subjects are capitalism and climate change. Her new work, On Fire: The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal, takes a slightly more optimistic view, arguing that the United States can and should enact the Green New Deal, a nationwide project that could, if done right, rebuild our crumbling infrastructure while also ending our reliance on fossil fuels. Klein, like many proponents of the GND, has tied this movement to a divorce with capitalism. And while this might not play well in Congress, I have a feeling she’ll find a sympathetic audience in Seattle.
