Thirty years ago, Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about climate change in his groundbreaking book The End of Nature. Now he broadens his message: He asks us to consider whether the entire human game has begun to play itself out. Even as climate change shrinks the space where civilization can exist, new technologies like artificial intelligence and robotics threaten to bleach away the variety of human experience.

Falter tells the story of these converging trends and of the ideological fervor that keeps us from bringing them under control. And then, drawing on his experience in building 350.org, the first truly global citizens movement to combat climate change, McKibben offers possible ways out of the trap. His book is a powerful and sobering call to arms, to save not only our planet but also our humanity.
