“What if global warming isn’t only a crisis? What if it’s the best chance we are ever going to get to build a better world?” So asks renowned author and social activist Naomi Klein in the new breakthrough documentary This Changes Everything, based on her eponymous best-seller — screening at All Saints Church on Sunday, December 13, 2:30 p.m. in the Forum.
In both book and film, Klein argues persuasively that our broken capitalist system and its dependence on unlimited economic growth, reckless plunder of the natural world, and profligate consumption are as much responsible for climate change as carbon emissions.
But she is also convinced that this existential crisis presents an unprecedented opportunity to reshape our world: to limit corporate power, move away from fossil fuels, foster local communities and reclaim democracy, efforts already under way with promising results in many parts of the globe.
As Klein has said, “Climate change is a civilizational wake-up call. Confronting it is no longer about changing light bulbs. It’s about changing the world–before the world changes so drastically that no one is safe.”
