In the shadow of an escalating eco-crisis—a looming catastrophe that will dwarf the fallout from COVID-19—how can we explain our society’s failure to act? What will we tell future generations? Are we paralyzed because the problem is so vast in scope, or are their deeper reasons for the widespread passivity? Drawing on his latest book, To reach The Spring: From Complicity to Consciousness in the Age of Eco-Crisis, author Nathaniel Popkin will explore the psychological, philosophical, and personal dimensions of this unfolding tragedy and imagine modes of being alive to the present reality.
