Reason in a Dark Time

Why the Struggle Against Climate Change Failed — and What It Means for Our Future

Dale Jamieson

  • Not a "save the earth" book but a sober diagnosis of why we have failed and a proposal for concrete steps for how to move ahead
  • Argues that common sense notions of responsibility are inadequate for moralizing acts that contribute to climate change
  • Reflects on how we, as individuals, can live meaningful lives in the face of climate change
  • Treats the historical, economic, and political dimensions of climate changes as well as the philosophical ones
