“I did not write this book in order to save the Earth,” begins Dale Jamieson in his new book, Reason in a Dark Time: Why the Struggle Against Climate Change Failed — and What It Means for Our Future. “My goal is to make you think.”
Seeing the book reminded me of this 2009 interview, in which Dale certainly made us all think.
That year, I published a couple of Dale’s articles on the ethics of climate change and of geoengineering. Months later, I joined the Portland Center for Public Humanities for this interview moderated by Avram Hiller, along with co-interviewer Ramona Ilea.
