Despite international efforts to halt climate change, greenhouse gas emissions have increased and global warming has become an undeniable reality. Why have we been unable to stop it? This book investigates the scientific, historical, economic and political dimensions of the problem, but above all our inability to prevent and control it in a meaningful way. According to the author, this ineptitude reflects the impoverishment of our systems of practical reason, the paralysis of our politics and the limits of our cognitive abilities... also diminishing the meaning of our being in the world and the role of our individual responsibility. Yet, Jamieson tells us, there is a lot we can do to slow climate change, to adapt to it and together reclaim and re-value our free will. The challenge that lies ahead must be faced with courage, not avoided, because it represents the decisive battle of our century
