ON FIRE The (Burning) Case for the Green New Deal

by | Read by Rebecca Lowman, Naomi Klein {Intro.]

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Naomi Klein's collection of previously published articles on climate change is likely to divide listeners along political lines, but that's a shame. Perhaps Rebecca Lowman's evenhanded narration will go some way toward widening the audience for Klein's work. Lowman manages to capture the edge and the urgency of the author's voice without ever being cloying. Klein's plea for action on climate change stretches beyond reducing the use of fossil fuels and includes unabashedly left-leaning calls for income equality and improved access to healthcare and postsecondary education. These ideas are backed up with thoughtful and practical arguments about how and why they must be part of the bigger plan to cool our planet. Lowman's narration makes them sound even more palatable.
