Description (required)

Beck and the far right, Oreskes and Conway provide us with a glimpse of
the dystopian future we may ACTUALLY face should we fail to heed the
warning of the worlds scientists regarding the looming climate change
crisis.
(Michael E. Mann, director, Penn State Earth System Science Center, and
author of The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the
Front Lines)
Oreskes and Conways startling and all-too-plausible history of the
century to come is in the spirit of George Orwell and Aldous Huxley and
all the writers who have turned to prophecy in the attempt to ward off
an oncoming disaster. Witty in its details and disturbing in its
plausibility, this is an account of the Long Emergency were entering
that you will not soon forget.
(Kim Stanley Robinson, author of Shaman, 2312, Science In the Capital,
and the Mars trilogy)
A chilling view of what our history could be. Ignore it and it becomes
more likely. Read this book, heed its warning, and perhaps we can avoid
its dire predictions.
(Timothy Wirth, vice chairman, United Nations Foundation, and former
U.S. Senator and Member, U.S. House of Representatives)
Regret, Oreskes and Conway argue, is an equal-opportunity employer.
Yes, climate change will be a nightmare for environmentalists. But
global warming also threatens free marketeers, because unabated, it
guarantees big government intervention. And thats the great service of
this short but brilliant parable: it creates bipartisan empathy for our
future selves. From that gift, perhaps we can summon the will to act
today.
(Auden Schendler, Vice President, Sustainability, Aspen Skiing Company)
Provocative and grimly fascinating, The Collapse of Western
Civilization offers a glimpse into a future that, with farsighted
leadership, still might be avoided. It should be required reading for
anyone who works--or hopes to--in Washington.
(Elizabeth Kolbert, author of The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural
History)
The scenario portrayed in this valuable little book is scarily
possible. It would be apt if readers took action to keep it from, you
know, happening.
(Bill McKibben, founder 350.org)
Packed with salient science, smart speculation and flashes of mordant
humour.
(Nature)
This science-historical fantasy is thought-provoking, but is it
prescient?
(Scientific American)
[A] must-read... What is science fiction today will someday be the
history of real, live people -- billions of them. Kudos to Oreskes and
Conway for finding a creative way to talk about the immoral choice we
are making today and how those billions of people will suffer for it.
(Climate Progress Blog)
Though short, Collapse provides a detailed examination of how weve
failed our environment -- and a call to action to save whats left.
(Discover 1900-01-00)
The authors creative attack, ahead of the 2014 U.S. midterm elections,
on those who today deny climate change and advocate a hands-off
approach by government, is what makes this work a must-read in the
politics of climate change. Its gift -- the real reason why everyone
should read it -- is that it gives us an opportunity to imagine the
world as our grandchildren will encounter it.
(Haaretz)
... Oreskes and Conway have carved out a new space for historians to
use their knowledge of alternative pasts to help imagine alternative
futures.
(Public Books)
A gripping and deeply disturbing account… Based on sound scholarship
and yet unafraid to speak boldly, this book provides a welcome moment
of clarity amid the cacophony of climate change literature.
(All Things Environmental)
Excellent… The Collapse of Western Civilization is a very readable and
effective way of communicating the catastrophic implications of where
we are heading under the climate crisis.
(Climate, People & Organizations)
Oreskes and Conway do justice to the full seriousness of climate
change. That seems to me prime among the many values of their book… For
all its dispassion the book is a call to arms.
Book Description
A haunting, provocative work of science-based fiction that imagines a
world devastated by climate change.
