Naomi Klein spoke about her book, This Changes Everything, at Politics & Prose's Busboys & Poets Brookland location on Monday, August 3, 2015.

In this important call to action, now available in paperback, Klein, the syndicated columnist and author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo points to climate change as both an imperative for rethinking how we live and an opportunity for reforming social and economic inequalities. A habitable Earth demands reducing greenhouse gases, and such reductions, in turn, will help create new kinds of communities.

Paul Greenberg spoke about his book, American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood, at Politics & Prose on Tuesday July 15, 2014.

In American Catch, award-winning author Paul Greenberg takes the same skills that won him acclaim in Four Fish to uncover the tragic unraveling of the nation’s seafood supply—telling the surprising story of why Americans stopped eating from their own waters. Despite the challenges, hope abounds. In New York, Greenberg connects an oyster restoration project with a vision for how the bivalves might save the city from rising tides. In the Gulf, shrimpers band together to offer local catch direct to consumers. And in Bristol Bay, fishermen, environmentalists, and local Alaskans gather to roadblock Pebble Mine. With American Catch, Paul Greenberg proposes a way to break the current destructive patterns of consumption and return American catch back to American eaters.

But in this provocative and optimistic rebuke to the catastrophists, Robert Bryce shows how innovation and the inexorable human desire to make things Smaller Faster Lighter Denser Cheaper is providing consumers with Cheaper and more abundant energy, Faster computing, Lighter vehicles, and myriad other goods. That same desire is fostering unprecedented prosperity, greater liberty, and yes, better environmental protection.
