Will be one of the most influential books of our time (Owen Jones)
Klein is a brave and passionate writer who always deserves to be heard, and this is a powerful and urgent book (John Gray Observer)
Without a doubt one of the most important books of the decade (Amitav Ghosh)
Savages the idea that we will be saved by new technologies or by an incremental shift away from fossil fuels... Her solution requires a radical reconfiguration of our economic system (New York Times)
Her task is to take a potential catastrophe of unimaginable reach and to be calm and welcoming, drawing new people in. She does vast amounts of travel and research and thinking, then crafts all of it to the scale of her own voice: the voice of a pleasant, funny, unthreatening-looking woman (Guardian)
I have devoured Naomi Klein's This Changes Everything, the book the world has been waiting for. I urge everyone to read it (especially politicians). It is her most prescient book yet and is a much-needed call to arms as time runs out on climate change (Cornelia Parker Observer, Books of the Year)
It's no exaggeration to say This Changes Everything is the most important book I've read all year - perhaps in a decade. Klein sets out the scientific case for urgent action on climate change and argues passionately that our only hope of combating its effects is a revolution in our entire economic system. Crucially, she manages to leave the reader with a degree of optimism (Stephanie Merritt Observer, Books of the Year)
[T]he problems - climate change, plus everything that is changing as a result, plus the increasing toxicity of the planet - can no longer be denied. This is a conversation that needs to happen on a large scale, and on a local scale, and on a personal scale, very soon (Margaret Atwood Guardian, Books of the Year)
Captured the collective sense of anger and awakening ... [a] frightening look at climate change and capitalism (Matt Haig Observer, Books of the Year)
Naomi Klein applies her fine, fierce, and meticulous mind to the greatest, most urgent questions of our times. . . I count her among the most inspirational political thinkers in the world today (Arundhati Roy, author of The God of Small Things and Capitalism: A Ghost Story)
A book of such ambition and consequence it is almost unreviewable ... The most momentous and contentious environmental book since Silent Spring (New York Times Book Review)
The book has an uplifting message: that humans have changed before, and can change again. It poses a gutsy challenge to those who are vaguely hoping that the whole issue will go away, or that some new technology will save us (Sunday Times)
This may be the first truly honest book ever written about climate change (Time)
The proposition that the world's political and economic institutions are preventing us from meeting the lethal challenge of global warming is hardly novel. But Naomi Klein in her new book articulates the case as forcefully and comprehensively as anyone has yet managed (Independent)
Powerfully and uncompromisingly written, the impassioned polemic we have come to expect from Klein, mixing first-hand accounts of events around the world and withering political analysis . . . Her stirring vision is nothing less than a political, economic, social, cultural and moral make-over of the human world (New Scientist)
Klein is one of the left's most influential figures and a prominent climate champion. . . . [She] is a gifted writer and there is little doubt about the problem she identifies (Financial Times)
Gripping and dramatic . . . [Klein] writes of a decisive battle for the fate of the earth in which we either take back control of the planet from the capitalists who are destroying it or watch it all burn (Rolling Stone)
An energetic exploration of issues surrounding climate change vociferously advocates immediate, radical reforms... The distinctiveness of the book resides... in its immersive reporting (on "Blockadia" eco-movements and futuristic geoengineering proposals) and in Klein's sheer outspokenness (New Yorker)
Klein has, with this book, thoroughly and completely debunked everything promoted under the banner of conservatism today - and she has done so with a work that's more powerful than a stack of C4.
This Changes Everything deserves to be viewed not as one of the greatest nonfiction works of the 2010s, but as one of the greatest nonfiction works of all-time. ... This book will expand and intensify the worldwide climate-justice movement, which is why the rhetorical attacks on Klein will become ever more aggressive. It will politically galvanize the young and the vulnerable, who have so much to lose due to the climate crisis. It will create climate leaders across this warming globe. This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate is not just a book, not just a moment, not just a movement. It is a weapon of justice. It is a path of survival
[Her] words and knowledge run deep, inspiring change and the need for immediate action (Charlize Theron)
Today @NaomiAKlein's new book #ThisChangesEverything is out now - I'm reading it - it's great (Russell Brand)
Naomi Klein is a genius. She has done for politics what Jared Diamond did for the study of human history. She skillfully blends politics, economics and history and distills out simple and powerful truths with universal applicability (Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.)
The manifesto that the climate movement - and the planet - needs right now... For those with whom her message does resonate - and they are likely to be legion - her book could help catalyze the kind of mass movement she argues the world needs now (San Francisco Gate)
Has the potential to be the definitive account of our current moment... Klein's great gifts have always been synthesizing huge amounts of information and drawing connections between seemingly disparate issues; on those points, This Changes Everything is no different (Globe and Mail)
Meticulously researched and briskly rational in tone, [it] is one of the basic texts of the modern era... an essential purchase in that it tells you precisely what you need to know to discuss the climate dilemma intelligently... This Changes Everything is basic reading and no one will take you seriously until you've read every single page (Toronto Star)
An intellectual hero of many in the alter-globalization protests as well as the Occupy movement. . . . Klein is ready for battle and is not afraid to own her politics (Los Angeles Review of Books)
This is the best book about climate change in a very long time-in large part because it's about much more. It sets the most important crisis in human history in the context of our other ongoing traumas, reminding us just how much the powers-that-be depend on the power of coal, gas and oil. And that in turn should give us hope, because it means the fight for a just world is the same as the fight for a livable one (Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature and co-founder of 350.org)

Though reader may agree more or less with her views, undoubtedly with her book she managed to tackle all the challenges facing humanity if we want to progress. Or simply survive.
Klein shows how profitable is denying of climate changes, but the question remains for how long we will be able to wait, until we get to the point of no return. She proves how uncompromising race for money threatens the very foundation of nature, our environment whose integral and indispensable part is human race.
She invites her readers not to wait anymore because very soon it would be too late and the collapse of our civilization will become inevitable, or as she said – “…society has no choice but to take dramatic action to avert a collapse of civilization. Either we will change our ways and build an entirely new kind of global society, or they will be changed for us.” And whatever you think about capitalism or the author I believe you will agree that the topic she is talking about is too important to be left to someone else - it is something that concerns all of us.
In her book, Klein is not just criticizing - she provides many solutions (solar, wind and renewal energy in general), shows examples of things managed to be done differently, but also debunks some myths that are often accidentally or intentionally used in the media as a means of environmental protection such as natural gas which is even more dangerous to environment than coal.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
Naomi Klein ist ein sehr intelligenter Mensch und hat eine unglaubliche Fähigkeit, die grossen Zusammenhänge zu sehen und Probleme bei Namen zu nennen. Sie analysiert Politik, Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft um die Grundproblematik der Klimakrise zu finden: So lange wir Wohlstand mit wachsendem materiellem Konsum gleichsetzen, werden wir keine Chance haben, die Klimaerwärmung zu stoppen. In diesem Sinne gibt es einen Konflikt zwischen den Naturgesetzen und den Gesetzen der Wirtschaft. Leider können wir die Gesetze der Natur nicht verändern.
Das Buch ist unglaublich wichtig und sollte von jedem Erdbewohner gelesen werden.
