Guy McPherson discusses his latest book Going Dark.
We are the last individuals of our species on Earth. How shall we respond? How shall we act? If industrial civilization is maintained, climate change will cause human extinction in the near term. If industrial civilization falls, sufficient ionizing radiation will be released from the world’s nuclear power plants to cause human extinction in the near term. In the wake of this horrific conclusion, conservation biologist McPherson proposes we act with compassion, courage, and creativity. He suggests we act with the kind of empathy for which humans are renowned. In other words, he suggests we act with decency toward the humans and other organisms with which we share this beautiful planet. Going Dark is the story of one scientist’s response to the horrors we face. It is a deeply personal narrative infused with abundant evidence to support its terrifying claims.
Going Dark peels the shadow from the cosy dreams we’ve all bought into – that technology will save us from climate change; that the products we consume are endless and untainted; that our modern idea of happiness and convenience doesn’t crush others; that the heartbeat of the industrial economy that pulses within us is sustainable and ethical. McPherson’s latest work will make you think twice.

Mike Berners-Lee discusses The Burning Question, a book co-authored with Duncan Clark. Climate change is the most fascinating scientific, political and social puzzle of our time. Great minds, enthusiastic leaders and green warriors have all tried to tackle the problem, but so far the world’s efforts at reducing global warming have failed. We do our best to save energy and technologies have made burning fuels more efficient, but the simple fact is carbon emissions are still accelerating upwards, following an exponential curve that goes back centuries. Like squeezing a balloon, reductions in one place lead to increases elsewhere. The real barrier to action is that the world has far more fossil fuel in its reserves than it can safely burn – at least twice as much and perhaps ten times as much. These reserves are worth tens of trillions of dollars and solving the problem means persuading the world to abandon them.
