An “epoch-defining book” (The Guardian) and “this generation’s Silent Spring” (The Washington Post), The Uninhabitable Earth is both a travelogue of the near future and a meditation on how that future will look to those living through it - the ways that warming promises to transform global politics, the meaning of technology and nature in the modern world, the sustainability of capitalism and the trajectory of human progress.

The Uninhabitable Earth devotes its third section, Climate Change Kaleidoscope, to looking at dimensions that go beyond the usual causes, areas of concern and potential solutions, to look at wider dimensions, which we will discuss: Storytelling; Crisis Capitalism; The Church of Technology; Politics of Consumption; History after Progress; Ethics at the end of the world.
