Summary
"While struggling to deny it, many environmentalists already suspect what they cannot admit: that it is now too late for sustainability. International attempts to combat climate change have failed and we can no longer avert environmental tragedy. But rather than despairing, this book explores where coming out of denial could take us. Giving an original philosophical account that draws on great works of literature and research, After Sustainability reveals that the roots of the environmental crisis lie in the way we think about ourselves and our lives. It shows how we must break free from the self-blinded optimism of sustainable development and progressivism if we are to survive the catastrophic consequences of environmental tragedy and face the future with honesty. This book is essential reading for students and researchers in environment and sustainability, geography, philosophy and climate change, but it is also an urgent call to all those who are concerned with the future of humanity"--
