There’s a new story in the making, one in which the consequences of our actions add up—and every contribution is meaningful.
If climate change is the biggest threat humanity has ever faced, then why are we doing so little about it? And where do we go from here?
Journalist Jelmer Mommers knows most people prefer not to talk or even think about climate change, and that is exactly why he wrote this book. Denial and despair are not the only possible responses to the current crisis.
Drawing on the latest science, Mommers describes how we got here, what possible future awaits us, and how you can help make a difference.
Five years in the making, How Are We Going to Explain This was an instant bestseller in the Netherlands. With this revised and updated translation, including responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, Mommers brings his unique blend of realism and hope to the wider world.
