Product description

From Amazon

Since he first heralded our era of environmental collapse in 1989's The End of Nature, Bill McKibben has raised a series of eloquent alarms. In Eaarth, he leads readers to the devastatingly comprehensive conclusion that we no longer inhabit the world in which we've flourished for most of human history: we've passed the tipping point for dramatic climate change, and even if we could stop emissions yesterday, our world will keep warming, triggering more extreme storms, droughts, and other erratic catastrophes, for centuries to come. This is not just our grandchildren's problem, or our children's--we're living through the effects of climate change now, and it's time for us to get creative about our survival. McKibben pulls no punches, and swaths of this book can feel bleak, but his dry wit and pragmatic optimism refuse to yield to despair. Focusing our attention on inspiring communities of "functional independence" arising around the world, he offers galvanizing possibilities for keeping our humanity intact as the world we've known breaks down. --Mari Malcolm

Review

“What I have to say about this book is very simple: Read it, please. Straight through to the end. Whatever else you were planning to do next, nothing could be more important.”
— Barbara Kingsolver, author of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
 
“Bill McKibben is the most effective environmental activist of our age. Anyone interested in making a difference to our world can learn from him.”
— Tim Flannery, author of The Weather Makers and The Eternal Frontier
 
“Precisely what the world has been waiting for: a smart, practical approach to solving the greatest crisis facing humanity. The fact that it is so beautifully written is an absolute bonus.”
— Bruce Lourie, co-author of Slow Death by Rubber Duck
 
“With clarity, eloquence, deep knowledge, and even deeper compassion for both planet and people, Bill McKibben guides us to the brink of a new, uncharted era. This monumental book, probably his greatest, may restore your faith in the future, with us in it.”
— Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us
 
“Bill McKibben foresaw ‘the end of nature’ very early on, and in this new book he blazes a path to help preserve nature’s greatest treasures.”
— James E. Hansen, director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies
