I was looking for something that focused more on the potential futures, the known and speculated effects of climate change, and a history of how different corporations and governments are driving that change. What I got instead was less "facts first" and more motivated polemic.

I can't argue the conclusions, really, but I wish the presentation hadn't been like this. When I'm presented with an opinion, then a solution, and at the end finally a few facts-- the writing feels very agenda driven.

It's unfortunate, because I really believe climate change to be an existential threat to the human race. I just want to know what we're in for and how we got here. This book touches on those topics, but only in between sections filled with emotional appeals, what-jf hypotheticals and grass-roots-will-fix-this hyperbole. ( )

I found Naomi Klein's book, "This Changes Everything" somewhat difficult to get through. I could easily sense her passion for the subject, and she indicated that she spent five years researching and writing the book. But taking five years to write a book doesn't mean that every story, situation and example you documented over that period actually needs to be included in the book. At almost 600 pages, I started to glaze over significant sections of the book, especially when she seemed to drift off subject, such as when describing her challenges in having a child.
Also, when it comes to Climate Change, Klein comes across as an alarmist's alarmist. When some reject the actions suggested by climate activists because those steps are considered too "radical" or "excessive", they're probably referring to some of the ideas contained in this book. I understand that people may be more likely spurred to action by fear, by emphasizing the most negative aspects of a policy, and that a calm discussion of dry science and statistics don't grab most people or move them to action. But if it's true that half the people in our Country are unconvinced about the science behind climate change, then I don't feel there was enough in Klein's book to (1) first convince them of the science of climate change, and (2) then move them to action. That's especially true if the action she recommends is to stop using all fossil fuels immediately. Despite her suggestion that renewable energy sources can replace fossil fuels NOW, most experts tend to feel that's still an impractical solution for today, and interim steps will still be required as we wean ourselves off coal and push toward that goal.
In emphasizing the need for immediate action and not making the case to support her claims with sufficient facts and data, I felt that the book fell flat and may lose many who she's trying to convince. Her call to action may be music to the ears of her fellow believers, but those on the bubble or uncertain of the science are unlikely (in my opinion) to give up their SUV's or install solar panels on their roofs without a little more convincing.
Seeds of doubt about the science proliferate on blogs, talk radio, and much of the media, and anyone who's been impacted by those influences probably will need to hear a convincing counter argument before they'll be prodded to take all the immediate actions recommended by the author. On the other hand, those who already are convinced that continued carbon emissions will have catastrophic consequences in the immediate future should find the book a useful call to action.

Klein's best book. ( )

Naomi Klein’s “This Changes Everything” is an exceptional book. It is a deeply researched book. She is, evidently, committed to the cause of protecting our environment. If not, she would not have written a hard-hitting book like this one.
“This Changes Everything” is not an easy book to read. There is a lot of information! I will take time to process this. She has gone over much ground in the book and has also forced me to re-test my assessment of some well-known people. I am glad that she shattered some myths because we have a tendency to give divine status on people who we admire.
Naomi has covered many aspects of the battle for the earth, but her underlying theme is corporate greed. I am glad about this because it has exposed me to another aspect of climate change outside the science. I am always astonished by blind greed and ask myself the point of our education. ( )

"We need to remember that the work of our time is bigger than climate change. We need to be setting our sights higher and deeper. What we're really talking about, if we're honest with ourselves, is transforming everything about the way we live on this planet."
-- Rebecca Tarbotton, Executive Director of the Rainforest Action Network, 1973-2012

"In my books I've imagined people salting the Gulf Stream, damming the glaciers sliding off the Greenland ice cap, pumping ocean water into dry basins of the Sahara and Asia to create salt seas, pumping melted ice from Antarctica north to provide freshwater, genetically engineering bacteria to sequester more carbon in the roots of trees, raising Florida 30 feet to get it back above water, and (hardest of all) comprehensively changing capitalism."
-- Science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson, 2012

A voice came over the intercom: would the passengers of Flight 3935, scheduled to depart Washington, D.C., for Charleston, South Carolina, kindly collect their carry-on luggage and get off the plane. (Introduction)

... The [climate change] deniers, and the ideological movement from which they sprang, won the battle over which values should govern our society. Their vision – that greed should guide us – has dramatically remade our world over the last four decades ...
... the real reason we are failing to rise to the climate moment is because the actions required directly challenge our reigning economic paradigm (deregulated capitalism combined with public austerity)
