Naomi Klein: The Struggles Against Climate Change and Racism Are Inseparable

As We Transition Away From Fossil Fuels, We Must Also Tackle Inequality
Staff | truthout.org | 2019-09-15
| Two truths lie at the heart of efforts to transition away from fossil fuels. The first is that to stave off the worst impacts of climate change, we must rapidly and dramatically reduce our carbon dioxide emissions. The second is that the resulting decrease in fossil fuel use and extraction will cause displacement of workers and the loss of tax revenue for many communities, and in some cases, it will eliminate entire tax bases. | The second truth does not change the first, and the costs…

Greta Thunberg on the Climate Fight: "If We Can Save the Banks, Then We Can Save the World"
Naomi Klein | theintercept.com | 2019-09-13
We are living through some scary times. As Greta has told us so often: "Our house is on fire." And I firmly believe that there are three things that have to align if we are going to douse the flames.

To give us a destination, a common goal, a picture of the world we are working towards. | But those dreams are useless unless we are willing to embrace the other two forces. One is the need to confront the truth of our moment in history — the truth of how much we have…
