Description

In spite of its disturbing implications, the impact of climate change on our physical environment can be difficult for us to understand or imagine. Moving from a memoir of a journey through an abundant yet fragile natural world to the daunting scientific evidence that climate change will lead to the degradation of nature and upheaval within society, this essay offers a lucid personal approach to the pivotal dilemma of our time. In a wide-ranging discussion that embraces science, history, art, language and identity, A Green Reef offers the reader an understanding of what climate change means for life on earth.

Editorial Review

Praise for A Green Reef: "Henighan writes with clarity, passion, and energy exposing a deeply personal vision of how climate change may undermine the world we live in. At a time when most of the writing on this topic is done by scientists who debate data and argue methods, A Green Reef stands out as an evocative and emotional reminder of everything we have to lose unless we pay much closer attention to the world that surrounds us and the changes we are causing in it." - Evan D. G. Fraser, Canada Research Chair in Global Human Security and co-author of Empires of Food: Feast, Famine and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations
