Summary

For too long, representations of climate action in the mainstream media have been white-washed, green-washed and diluted to be made compatible with capitalism.

We are living in an economic system which pursues profit above all else; harmful, oppressive systems that heavily contribute to the climate crisis, and environmental consequences that have been toned down to the masses. Tackling the climate crisis requires us to visit the roots of poverty, capitalist exploitation, police brutality and legal injustice. Climate justice offers the real possibility of huge leaps towards racial equality and collective liberation as it aims to dismantle the very foundations of these issues.

In this book, Mikaela Loach offers a fresh and radical perspective for real climate action that could drastically change the world as we know it for the benefit of us all. Full of candour and hope, It's Not That Radical will galvanise listeners to take action, offering an accessible and transformative appraisal of our circumstances to help mobilise a majority for the future of our planet.

A better, just world for all

Written with honesty, kindness and hope, a book that calls for climate action that does not simply maintain the status quo but creates a better, just world for all.

Recommending everyone (those within and outside the climate movement, young and old, researchers, policy makers etc.) to read or listen to this book.

It’s time for us all to get involved to create a better world.

Please read this book

Such a clear articulation of how systemic injustice and the climate crisis are innately linked. Mikaela has a profoundly compassionate approach to taking action towards climate justice and a safer, habitable future for us all. I hope as many people as possible read this and respond.
