Congregational UUMFE Book Read and Discussion: On Fire

Date/Time
Date(s) - February 27, 2021
3:00 pm - 4:30 pm


Tom Gibson will lead a UU Ministry for Earth book discussion of the environmental best seller On Fire; The (Burning) Case for a Green New Deal by Naomi Klein. The book offers both the Big Picture, but also lots of what-you-can-do practical steps. Here’s the way a Washington Post book review praised the book:
“…. if you are sympathetic to the goals of the Green New Deal but are as yet unconvinced, as I was before reading “On Fire,” you need to read this book. Klein marshals the most powerful arguments for why climate change cannot be effectively addressed without a simultaneous deep reckoning with our society’s other ills of wealth and income inequality, racial discrimination, and crumbling infrastructure.”
