An urgent and deeply felt call to face our complicity in the Earth's destruction. In the shadow of an escalating eco-crisis – a looming catastrophe that will dwarf the fallout from COVID-19 – how can we explain our society's failure to act? What will we tell future generations? Are we paralyzed because the problem is so vast in scope, or are there deeper reasons for the widespread passivity? Nathaniel Popkin explores the moral, social, and psychological dimensions of the crisis, outlining a path to a future spring.
Novelist, essayist, editor, documentary writer, and critic, Nathaniel Popkin is the author of six books and co-editor of the anthology Who Will Speak for America?
