Waterstones Says

Confronting issues of capitalism, white privilege and endemic poverty, Loach's transformative manifesto aims at dismantling institutional prejudice in the cause of climate action.

=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.

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. Written with candour and hope, It's Not That Radical galvanises readers to take action. The paperback edition will include a ‘Letter from Mikaela’ to update readers one year on from the publication of the hardback edition.
