We are used to hearing that the climate crisis is serious, but still solvable if we start acting on it soon. The reality is different. Things are going to get much worse, for a long time, whatever we now do – which hardly anyone wants to admit.

This book from the Green House collective offers climate honesty. The time for focusing primarily on mitigation is over. We now need to adapt to the dark reality of climate breakdown. But this means a deep reframing of our entire way of life. The book explores how transformative adaptation might enable us to confront escalating climate chaos while not giving up hope.

Speaker: Jonathan Essex is a chartered engineer and environmentalist. He combines working in international development with serving as a Green Councillor in Surrey.
