An IPCC special report on climate change, desertification, land degradation, sustainable land management, food security, and greenhouse gas fluxes in terrestrial ecosystems
Thirty years ago Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about climate change. Now he broadens the warning: the entire human game, he suggests, has begun to play itself out.
Bill McKibben’s groundbreaking book The End of Nature — issued in dozens of languages and long regarded as a classic — was the first book to alert us to global warming. But the danger is broader than that: even as climate change shrinks the space where our civilization can exist, new technologies like artificial intelligence and robotics threaten to bleach away the variety of human experience.
the story of these converging trends and of the ideological fervor that
keeps us from bringing them under control. And then, drawing on
McKibben’s experience in building 350.org, the first truly global
citizens movement to combat climate change, it offers some possible ways
out of the trap. We’re at a bleak moment in human history — and we’ll
either confront that bleakness or watch the civilization our forebears
built slip away.
Falter is a powerful and sobering call to arms, to save not only our planet but also our humanity.
The Climate Museum’s poetry slam at Harlem’s Apollo Theater was
equal parts grief, anger, and hope.

When:8/16 at 1pm, Where: Seattle City Hall
Why: Every Friday from 1-2 a group, called Fridays for Future, of mostly youth Climate Strike in front of Seattle City Hall. They are asking extra people go out on 8/16 to show support for Zoe. Every week they use sidewalk chalk to show their message for climate action. This past week an adult handed Zoe a bottle of spray on chalk that turned out to be chalk paint. As soon as she realized they began making plans to clean it up, but the police intervened and took a 13 year old away in handcuffs.
Holy SHIT, @seattlePD. Making a 13-year old w/ sidewalk chalk cry, & cuffing her?
“You realize she’s 13 years old?”“That’s great, we’ll figure it out at the precinct. We’re not going to sit here while we’re surrounded by a bunch of people who want to make their opinions known.” pic.twitter.com/iCgPkktRF1
