This book shows how we can solve the climate change crisis, which is the greatest threat humanity has faced. Charles Derber, a prominent sociologist and political economist, shows that global warming is a symptom of deep pathologies in global capitalism. In conversational and passionate writing, Derber shows that climate change is capitalism's time bomb, certain to explode unless we rapidly transform our economy and create a new green American Dream Derber shows there is hope in the financial meltdown and Great Recession we are now suffering. The economic crisis has raised deep questions about Wall Street and the US capitalist model. Derber systematically explores the causal links between capitalism and climate change, a taboo subject in the U.S, and opens up new thinking to solve both the economic and climate crises.

Charles Derber, Professor of Sociology at Boston College, has written for Newsday, Newsweek, Business Week, Time, the Christian Science Monitor, and other magazines. He speaks frequently on National Public Radio, talk radio, and television. His most recent book is Capitalism: Should You Buy It? An Invitation to Political Economy (Paradigm 2014).
