Divided into three parts – Science, Politics, and Meaning – it contains a transcript of NASA scientist James Hansen’s testimony before Congress, George Monbiot’s biting, convincing indictment of who is really using up the planet’s resources: and New Yorker writer Elizabeth Kolbert’s groundbreaking essay “The Darkening Sea”
