Product Information

'It's time we stopped pretending that the climate crisis is unrelated to market fundamentalism, because we cannot fix the climate until we fix the way power and wealth are allocated. Kempf reminds us of the verities we forgot when we became mesmerised by affluence.' Clive Hamilton, Professor of Public Ethics, Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics and author of The Freedom Paradox. 'A fact-filled, concise, hard-hitting, highly rational, and much needed analysis of the crises we face, and of the need to both reduce and redistribute global material consumption.' John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man. 'Kempf's elegant thesis puts a stake in the heart of neoliberalism, explains ecology like a poet, and unravels the self-serving economic theories of both the left and the right. ... He worries about the trees and the economy and democracy - in short, he puts the pieces of the puzzle together.' John Passacantando, Executive Director of Greenpeace USA.

Herve Kempf is Environmental Editor of Le Monde, France's most influential daily newspaper, and the founder of Reporterre, a website devoted to discussion about the environment and social justice. He lives in France.
