Kate Aronoff

New Republic staff writer, co-author of A Planet to Win: Why We Need a New Green Deal, and co-editor of We Own the Future: Democratic Socialism, American Style, Kate Aronoff gives this virtual talk for the first book of her own writing, the more-than-timely Overheated: How Capitalism Broke the Planet - And How We Fight Back (Bold Type Books).

"Kate Aronoff is so sharp, witty and relentlessly on-target that reading her fills me with hope. Overheated is a blistering account of the many varieties of denial that have prepared the ground for climate catastrophe — and a thrilling tour of the kind of visionary politics and policies that could put the future back in our hands. Please: read this book."—Naomi Klein.

“In this deep and vital analysis, Kate Aronoff subjects every flimsy pretext and prevarication for postponing the climate emergency to a forensic analysis. She uncovers the genealogy of ideas, and the flows of money behind them. And then, with a razor-sharp intellect, she eviscerates the climate deniers, one lie at a time. If we are to win the battle for a livable planet, we’ll only do so with the moral clarity and intelligence that Overheated has in abundance.”—Raj Patel.
