Sometimes it is easy to forget that every day, people across the world are already feeling the impacts of the climate crisis. Science puts us on an unyielding deadline: this is the crucial decade to get our act together.
“It is a civilizational wake-up call. A powerful message – spoken in the language of fires, floods, droughts, and extinctions – telling us that we need an entirely new economic model and a new way of sharing this planet.” Naomi Klein, This Changes Everything
