Facing Up to Climate Reality: Honesty, Disaster and Hope


Add your own review!

Overview

We are used to hearing that the climate crisis is serious, but still tractable if we start acting on it soon. The reality is different. Things are going to get much worse, for a long time, whatever we now do - though hardly anyone wants to admit it. This book from the Green House collective offers climate honesty. The time for focusing primarily on mitigation is over. We now need to adapt to the dark reality of climate breakdown. But this means a deep reframing of our entire way of life. The book explores how transformative adaptation might enable us to confront escalating climate chaos while not giving up hope. Facing Up to Climate Reality is a book for those brave enough to abandon the illusion of continuing normality, and embark on a harder, truer journey. Catastrophe or hope? Read this book and make up your own mind.

Reviews

Readers of this fascinating book are brought closer to the truth that world temperatures will rise this century to levels only experienced on the planet many millions of years ago, long before homo sapiens; and that catastrophe is therefore almost-inevitably impending. Mayer Hillman, father of carbon rationing and author of 'How We Can Save the Planet' (Penguin, 2004); This important new collection brings the trademark radicalism of Green House to the climate crisis. The authors set out an array of bold and hopeful ideas, consider how facing up to climate disasters can kindle new green shoots of community, and explore the psychology of climate communication. The book both pursues climate honesty rigorously and offers hope for the future. Caroline Lucas MP, author of 'Honourable Friends? Parliament and the Fight for Change' (Portobello Books, 2015)
