"How should we think the future? This is the vital climate change question posed by this compelling collection of essays. Confronting the idea of apocalypse head on, contributors ask what imaginings are required to lever the changes we need. Does the idea of catastrophe free us to think anew, or freeze us into inaction? In the wake of Copenhagen, fresh thinking is needed - the kind of thinking you'll find in this book." --Andy Dobson, Keele University, UK "Intellectual titillation" --Morning Star "The climate revolution is being televised- not only in fantasy-disaster flicks like The Day After Tomorrow but on the morning weather report. The future is here, and it needs an ethics." --Harpers
