Buchklappentext

Our climate crisis may at times appear to be happening slowly, but in fact it is happening very quickly—and has become a true plan-etaryemergency. The Chinese expression forcr/s/s consists of two characters. Thefirst is a symboi for danger; the second is a sym-bolforopportun/ty. In ordertoface down the danger that is stalking us and move through it, we first have to recognize that we are facing a crisis. So why is it that our leaders seem not to hear such clarion warnings? Are they resisting the truth because they know that the moment they acknowledge it, they will face a moral imperative to act? Is it simply more convenient to ignore the warnings?

Perhaps, but inconvenient truths do not go away just because they are not seen. Indeed, when they are not responded to, their significance doesn't diminish; it grows.
