While society turns to technology solutions to solve global warming, Charles Derber in this unique and uplifting book shows that the real and achievable solution is to be found...in society itself. "Why," Derber asks, "is society not taking the urgent actions needed to save itself when much of the technology already exists?"
The answer lies in overcoming deep yet profound denial and hopelessness. In the first book to intensively explore the "denial regime" surrounding global warming Derber moves beyond the "science deniers" to explore the personal denial most of us feel, consciously and subconsciously.
Global Warming-capitalism's time bomb-can and must be solved through both individual and institutional change. People have more power than they think. The solution requires individuals to release themselves from the bonds of hopelessness and denial; to transform themselves toward green lifestyles; and to pursue the pathways currently available to work with: national and local governments, schools, churches, corporations, and other institutions. Derber passionately describes and models these personally transforming changes from his own life and from the lives of neighbors, friends, and colleagues who have discovered the joys of becoming part of the solution and have learned to live powerful, democratic, change-minded lives.
