Naomi Klein (Canada, 1970) is a journalist, writer and figurehead of the alter-globalists. Her first worldwide bestseller was No Logo (2001), and this was followed in 2009 by The Shock Doctrine, of which more than a million copies were sold in over thirty countries.
This September her book This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate appeared, in which she states that we have arrived in ‘Decade Zero’, the period when we shall have to decide whether we are going to thoroughly change things and take a different approach to nature.
‘I am convinced that climate change on a grand scale offers historical opportunities. … But before any one of these changes can take place – before we believe that climate change can change us – we have to stop looking in the other direction.’
