Naomi Klein On Why The Climate Change Deniers Are Right

Naomi Klein argues somewhat counter-intuitively in her new book. "This Changes Everything" that the Climate Change deniers have a better grasp on "the political implications of the science" --as opposed to the science itself, which they're wrong about -- and "of what it means to how we need to change our economy and what the role of the public sphere is and the role of collective action is, better than some of those sort of big, slick, centrist green groups that are constantly trying to sell climate action as something entirely reconcilable with a booming capitalist economy."
