Forget everything you think you know about global warming. The really inconvenient truth is that it’s not about carbon—it’s about capitalism.

In her most provocative book yet, Naomi Klein, tackles the most profound threat humanity has ever faced: the war our economic model is waging against life on earth.

The convenient truth is that we can seize this existential crisis to transform our failed economic system and build something radically better.

The path to nonviolence essentially includes how we navigate the inextricably tied economic and climate changes that must occur. This book begins the conversation.

Woven is commitment to the environment, supporting programs on climate change and global warming as societal issues that amplify peace.

In 2014, the book won the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction, Canada’s most prestigious award for non-fiction.  Also was named Observer Book of the Year and a New York Times Book Review 100 Notable Books of the Year and Margaret Atwood chose it for The Guardian’s Best Books of 2014 list.
