Summary
The world itself won't end, of course. Only ours will: our livelihoods, our homes, our cultures. And we're squarely at the tipping point. Unless we start addressing the causes of climate change and stop simply navigating its effects, we will be facing a series of unstoppable catastrophes by the time our preschoolers graduate from college. Our world is in trouble - right now. This Is the Way the World Ends tells the real stories of the substantial impacts to Earth's systems unfolding across each continent. The bad news - within two decades or so, our carbon budget will reach a point of no return. But there's good news. Like every significant challenge we've faced - from creating civilization in the shadow of the last ice age to the Industrial Revolution - we can get out of this box canyon by understanding the realities and changing the worn-out climate conversation to one that's relevant to every person
