Chapter 1: Climate Change is real

The first chapter is devoted to list a lot of Anecdotal anectdotal evidence? that temperatures have risen on earth, and that this already had a lot of impact.

Chapter 4: Envisioning our civilization’s future

Bill McKibben describes the kind of civilization that could be able to survive Climate climate change:

It’s a civilization with much less mobility, more localized and concentrated on getting all necessary goods from the neighborhood.

The internet, on the other hand, will help as a substitute to the kind of mobility and diversity that people grew accustomed to during the end of the 20th century.
