Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?

It’s Worse Than You Think

by David Meyer

Leading environmentalist Bill McKibben offers a detailed presentation of the ongoing climate catastrophe and how humanity can forestall it.

Since Bill McKibben first sounded the alarm about climate change in the 1980s, humans have only ramped up their consumption of fossil fuels. The global ecology has already passed an important tipping point, McKibben argues in this truly terrifying account. The venerable environmental writer says that the damage is already irreparable and that humanity must mitigate further calamity by shifting quickly to green energy.

McKibben’s well-founded alarmism won’t sway climate change deniers, but he is no Chicken Little – his authoritative reporting is an imperative wake-up call.
