Abstract

Naomi Klein is one of the most popular activists in the climate movement. She is more a voice and intellectual leading figure of the movement than an organizer or practical leader. Her influence and popularity primarily stem from her texts, speeches, and interviews about climate change and the climate movement. One of her most known texts is ‘Capitalism vs. the Climate’ published in the US magazine The Nation in November 2011 (Klein 2011).
