Heal the great separation between humans and nature, and help create a future worth remembering.

The Memory We Could Be movesbeyond the sterile, technical language around climate change and ecologyto humanize the abstraction of global warming and bring differentvoices into the conversation.

Drawing on sources from anthropology to hydrology, botany to economics,agronomy to astrobiology, medicine to oceanography, physics to history,the author weaves a lyrical and powerful story of our relationship withnature.

The book has three parts:

Past addresses memory. Our inability to comprehend our staggeringpresent partly lies in our ignorance of our staggering past. We peerinto the black box of history to understand how we got here. We go on ajourney across the roots of our ecological crisis, from the Roman Empireto the forests of Burma, from Congolese rubber plantations, toColombian oil fields.

Present illustrates how climate change is shaping our world today,explores how it relates to poverties and inequalities, and equipsreaders with a set of intuitive instruments to understand climateimpacts.

Future looks at alternatives and strives to illustrate in human termsthe world we could lose and the world we can win. It asks what we can doand develops a transformative vision of a more ecological and equitableeconomy.

The Memory We Could Be is vital reading for all of humanity.
