The Great Disruption</em> offers a stark and unflinching look at the challenge humanity faces, yet also a deeply optimistic message. The coming decades will see loss, suffering, and conflict; however, they will also bring out the best humanity can offer: compassion, innovation, resilience, and adaptability. Gilding tells us how to fight – and win – what he calls the “one-degree war” to prevent catastrophic warming of the earth. We can start today.
