Confronting Climate Collapse

David W. Orr

  • A bracing examination of the causes and consequences of climate destabilization-and an inspiring guide to how we can best navigate the long emergency ahead
  • Author platform: A respected voice in climate change policy, Orr initiated and helped fund the President's Climate Action Project (PCAP), a two year, $2 million project which resulted in a thorough systematic analysis of the steps that President Obama needs to take in the first 100 days of his administration in order to develop a coherent, timely, and effective climate policy
  • Original argument: Orr reframes the climate change issue as one of governance and morality, not primarily a matter of technology and economics
