A Good War by Seth Klein
Canada needs to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 50%. We’ll need radical systemic change to how we live and work. How can we ever achieve this? Klein reveals we can do it now because we’ve done it before, during WWII. He demonstrates how wartime thinking and community efforts can be repurposed today for Canada’s own Green New Deal. A Good War offers a remarkably hopeful message for how we can meet the defining challenge of our lives.
