Inhaltsangabe

Climate change: It is arguably the most urgent and consequential issue humankind has ever faced. How we address it in the next 30 years will determine the kind of world we will live in and will bequeath to our children and to theirs.

In The Future We Choose, Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac - who led negotiations for the United Nations during the historic Paris Agreement of 2015 - have written a cautionary but optimistic audiobook about the world's changing climate and the fate of humanity. The authors outline two possible scenarios for our planet. In one, they describe what life on Earth will be like by 2050 if we fail to meet the Paris climate targets. In the other, they lay out what it will be like to live in a carbon neutral, regenerative world. They argue for confronting the climate crisis head-on, with determination and optimism. 

The Future We Choose presents our options and tells us what governments, corporations, and each of us can and must do to fend off disaster.

Kritikerstimmen

“The Paris Agreement was a landmark for humankind. In this timely and important book, two of the principal creators of that agreement show us why and how we can now realize its promise. I hope it is widely read and acted on.” (Jane Goodall, author of In the Shadow of Man)

“This is one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. The book takes a hard look at the frightening realities of climate change, but concludes that humanity can still deal with this threat. Moreover, the book presents the existential challenge of climate change as a unique opportunity to build a more just world and to make ourselves better people. Most importantly, the book adopts a very practical approach, and suggests 10 concrete actions that each of us can take in order to create a better future for all the residents of planet earth. I hope we all take this message to heart.” (Yuval Harari, best-selling author of Sapiens and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century)

"There could not be a more important book." (Richard Branson)
