ADDRESS:

It has become impossible to deny that the planet is warming, and that governments must act. But a new denialism is taking root in the halls of power, shaped by decades of neoliberal policies and centuries of anti-democratic thinking.

This approach, journalist Kate Aronoff makes clear, will only drive the planet further into emergency. In Overheated, Aronoff lays out an alternative vision, detailing how democratic majorities can curb polluters’ power; create millions of well-paid, union jobs; enact climate reparations; and transform the economy into a more leisurely and sustainable one. Our future will require a radical reimagining of politics—with the world at stake.

Aronoff will be in conversation with Jane Fonda, two-time Academy Award winner and an Emmy award–winning American actor and activist.
