About this book

There have been many books and reports in recent years explaining just how dire the future looks and how little time is left to act on climate change. This book considers why these warnings have been ignored and why it may now be too late. It is a book about the frailties of the human species as expressed in both the institutions that Man has built and the psychological dispositions that have led human-kind on the path of self-destruction.
