“A masterly analysis of why – with a world of solutions – we choose doom.” Nature

The future is being transformed by climate change, faster and more dramatically than we realized. Politics, technology, cities, business, even our sense of history, human rights and justice will all be changed by this massive force. But how? To what degree? Author of the critically-hailed bestseller The Uninhabitable Earth and deputy editor and climate change columnist at New York magazine, David Wallace-Wells tells the epic story of our time. He asks key questions and reminds us that everything is within our control, so long as we resist complacency. This, he says, is the moment to truly engage with what climate change really means.
