Eaarth is a book by Bill McKibben about climate change. The title refers to the Earth, which McKibben claims has been so substantially changed by human influence that a new name is in order: “let it be Eaarth.”

Content and Discussion


As the title suggests, the author does not discuss if climate change is happening, he takes this for granted (see POV?).

Chapter 1: Climate Change is real

The first chapter is devoted to list a lot of 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 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.
