Crazy People Are Crazy

Climate activist Naomi Klein has launched a star-studded and sweeping “manifesto for the planet” that calls for an end to fossil fuel dependence and new economic order for Canada.

The “Leap Manifesto” debuted with support from a predictable cast of climate and social justice activists, including David Suzuki, Greenpeace, Oxfam, The Council of Canadians and social justice activist Stephen Lewis. …

The manifesto itself is an ambitious plan that includes… everything. It calls for, among other things: the recognition of First Nations rights and title; an end to fossil fuel subsidies; collective control of new energy systems instead of private ownership; a non-polluting economy; a national child-care program; immigration status and full protection for all workers; and a debate about a universal basic annual income.
