    136 • Intersectional Environmentalism

    DYK the climate crisis ain't a standalone issue, isolated from all else? It is in fact interwoven and intersecting with all areas of our lives and the action we take must reflect that! What does that mean? It means it's really easy to engage with The Green New Deal and intersectional environmentalism on a daily basis. In fact, you're probably already doing it! This episode is part two with Theresa Godin as she dissects On Fire, a book by Naomi Klein about the burning case for a Green New Deal. Jump into episode one here and then get into this one!
