New Climate Change Book?
Apparently according to Democracy Now! Klein is writing a new book on climate change.
AMY GOODMAN: Our guest for the hour is Naomi Klein, journalist and author. Her latest book, The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism. She’s writing a new book on climate change and the climate change deniers. Naomi, take it from there.
NAOMI KLEIN: Yeah, I mean, the book is not about the deniers, but it does get into it, because I started trying to understand these dramatic drops in belief that climate change is real.
Where is the criticisms section? Ive read a huge amount of criticism about Klein from left and right, isnt it usually wikipedia policy to have criticism sections on a popular thinker like this? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:12, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
- Good question! A criticism section is sorely missing. Another thing, I think that there are too many quotes from reviews of her books - The Shock Doctrine has its own detailed article where they belong. Who will pick up the glove and fix the article? Bazuz (talk) 13:16, 30 September 2011 (UTC)
- She doesn't have much of that. Her books are just a collection of seemingly any sort of anti-capitalist argument she can find. There isn't much coherent philosophy as a base. So a summary of criticism against the books could work, if you can make one that isn't WP:SYN. --OpenFuture (talk) 04:04, 1 October 2011 (UTC)
As Wall Street loving Republican, I enjoyed hearing her speak. She was entertaining with an opinion on everything. However, she does seem to be a bigot towards hedge fund managers who are "35 and earning 100 times more than a brain surgeon." Should people be judged (or applauded) for how much money they make,... or should they be judged instead by how they use what they have, regardless of their income? Klien asserts that these very high income earners are able to do so due to greed, hubris, and overconfidence. Does every consumer who bought more house than they could afford (or who charged more debt on their credit cards than they could afford) also not act out of greed, hubris, and overconfidence? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 04:51, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

That's silly. The article should be developed with proper citations as per Wikipedia's guidelines. It could use more links, and it seems that even with many critics, there is talk of a criticism section but nobody has even bothered to create one. This article is obviously not "hot" enough for any such moderation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 04:58, 9 November 2012 (UTC)
