Naomi Klein on Democracy Now! Discussing Capitalism vs. the Climate

Naomi Klein on Democracy Now! Discussing Capitalism vs. the Climate

Author Naomi Klein fueled a high-profile economic narrative with her 2007 book The Shock Doctrine. Environmental advocates hope she'll do the same for climate change with her new book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate.

Following the hottest August on record around the world, the 354th consecutive month with temperatures above the 20th-century average and a month that saw worldwide floods, wildfires, hurricanes and droughts, climate activists will gather in New York this weekend for the People's Climate March. It's expected to be the largest environmental action in history.

Klein will be there as part of the NYC Climate Convergence, where she'll talk at the closing plenary Saturday. She joined Democracy Now! hosts Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales to discuss her book, the weekend events and what's going on with the climate in an hour-long interview.
