Thinking about climate change can create a paralysing sense of hopelessness. But what about the idea of a planetary exodus? Are high-tech solutions like colonizing other planets just another distraction from taking real action?

This radical book unsettles how we think about taking responsibility for environmental catastrophe.

Going beyond both hopelessness and false hope in his development of a ‘sociology of the very worst’, David W. Hill debunks the idea of a society that centres around human beings and calls for us to take responsibility for sustaining a coexistence of animals, plants and minerals bound by one planet.

We would then find the centre of our moral gravity here together on earth.
