Naomi Klein Brands PM Abbott a ‘Climate Villain’ (Link)

Climate action author and activist Naomi Klein recently spoke at the Vatican Climate Change Conference. Now she’s preparing to head to Australia for the Sydney Festival of Dangerous Ideas to talk about ‘Capitalism and the Climate’ on September 5th. As a prelude, she called out PM Tony Abbott as a ‘climate villain.’

In a pair of interviews given ahead of her upcoming visit to Australia, author and activist Naomi Klein branded Prime Minister Tony Abbott as a “climate villain” and said that Canadians and Australians can relate because they are both run by governments bent on destroying the planet. “In Canada I can’t tell where the oil industry ends and the government begins and in Australia the same is true when it comes to coal,” she told Guardian Australia in an interview published Sunday. ~ Lauren McCauley, Common Dreams

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
