This gripping, deeply thoughtful book considers the future of civilization in the light of what we know about climate change and related threats. David Orr, an award-winning, internationally recognized leader in the field of sustainability and environmental education, pulls no punches: Even with the Paris Agreement of 2015, Earth systems will not reach a new equilibrium for centuries.

I found nothing to disagree with in this book. That's sad considering the bleak picture Orr paints of our predicament. Filled with passages of startling, evocative beauty and wisdom.
