Naomi Klein author of This Changes Everything, explains the fundamental organizing reality of the climate crisis and why the "right is right" on what addressing climate will mean for capitalism. Why the left should talk about climate change all the time and why they don't talk about it more. Why the "extraction worldview" allow us to think of ourselves as separate from nature. Why the 1980s were the worst time for establishing a serious policy on climate change.

And defining the movement that needs to be built in order to reverse the climate crisis.
