Reason in a Dark Time: Why the Struggle Against Climate Change Failed – and What It Means for Our Future

  • Not a "save the earth" book but a sober diagnosis of why we have failed and a proposal for concrete steps for how to move ahead
  • Argues that common sense notions of responsibility are inadequate for moralizing acts that contribute to climate change
  • Reflects on how we, as individuals, can live meaningful lives in the face of climate change
  • Treats the historical, economic, and political dimensions of climate changes as well as the philosophical ones

About this book

From the 1992 Rio Earth Summit to the 2009 Copenhagen Climate Conference there was a concerted international effort to stop climate change. Reason in a Dark Time is about what climate change is, why we failed to stop it, and why it still matters what we do.
