On his book Living through the End of Nature: The Future of American Environmentalism

Cover Interview of March 01, 2011


Living through the End of Nature offers a nuanced look at our contemporary challenges as environmentalists—both collective and personal challenges.  So my hope is that environmentalists will read it and wrestle with its implications.

I believe the book can provide some solace for those of us who overwork ourselves in a frenzied anxiety to “save the planet,” and inspire those of us who are paralyzed by the immensity of our collective, environmental work to reengage on behalf of all life.  Along these lines, the book can help to the degree it provides an honest and humble path toward a green, just future.
