Can we act quickly and wisely enough to prevent climate change – better called climate disruption – from destroying human civilization? There is no greater issue facing humanity today. This book provides everything people need to know in order to enter into serious discussions and make good decisions.

“Unprecedented is a tour de force of enormous importance for our planetary future. In his superb analysis of climate change through the lens of science, politics, economics, energy, morality, and religion, Griffin has provided a wealth of insight for how to move forward. This will be an indispensable book for raising awareness that civilization itself is at stake.” MARY EVELYN TUCKER, Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University
