This September, former CCPA–BC director Seth Klein will be virtually touring his new book on how to mobilize Canada for the climate emergency. It’s called A Good War and it could not come out at a more important moment.
In the book, Seth explores how we can align our politics and economy with what the science says we must do to address the climate crisis. But he brings an original and uniquely hopeful take to this challenge, based on lessons we can draw from the Second World War, when Canada faced a similarly existential threat.
According to Seth, Canada’s wartime experience provides an inspirational reminder that we have done this before. We have mobilized in common cause across class, race and gender, and entirely retooled our economy in the space of a few short years
