—Daniel Ellsberg, author of The Doomsday Machine
“The project that is the Green New Deal is enriched by the insights of two great minds: those of Noam Chomsky and Robert Pollin. Both understand that the GND will fail if it does not protect the jobs and livelihoods of the working class. They explain how a transformation needed to restore the ecosystem can, and will transform the organisations and lives of working people worldwide—for the better.”
—Ann Pettifor, author of The Case for The Green New Deal
“This little book contains a big idea: climate stabilisation that avoids the collapse of organised social life can be achieved, along with more decent jobs, improved living standards and reduced poverty everywhere in the world. Two eminent thinkers present a convincing case for a realistic, feasible Global Green New Deal.”
—Jayati Ghosh, Professor of Economics, Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi
“In this compelling read, linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky and progressive economist Robert Pollin present a convincing case for a realistic, feasible Global Green New Deal.”
“[Chomsky and Pollin] argue it is possible to tackle climate collapse over the next 30 years … A capitalist system that fails to respond does not deserve to survive.”
“Emphasises the crisis our planet faces but also says ‘there is a solution at hand.’”
“Brisk and lucid.”
—John Freeman, Lit Hub (“Most Anticipated Books of 2020”)
“A thought-provoking and succinct manifesto.”
—Russell Whitehouse, International Policy Digest

Together Pollin and Chomsky offer a realistic solution to the climate crisis, as well as describing the reality of global catastrophic problems being caused by human beings.
Está escrito con un formato de entrevista, pero las preguntas son como subtemas del capítulo. Su lectura es ágil, amena, entretenida y sobre todo, ilustrativa.
