David Wallace-Well’s book (with the same title as his 2017 article that you can read here) is well worth reading. It’s a compilation and exploration of the work of climate scientists and their modeling of what the world may look like based on how much warming is already locked in and how much action we take (or don’t take) to halt emissions. It is really tough going at times reading how much trouble we are in and then seeing how little action is being taken at a government and global level. We need leadership and we need action now. I took a heap of notes and have put a few below.

In the face of climate breakdown and an ecological emergency we need bold thinking and a re-imagining of our place in Nature and our relationship with our home.
