Frank Schätzing on climate change - as exciting as a thriller

We're in a thriller. She and I. Not as a listener and author. As actors. Said thriller has been written on since time immemorial and changes the title again and again. It is currently called Climate Crisis. Pandemic. Digitalization. Terror. In the past it was called the Cold War, Arms Race, before World War II, World War One. But never before have we been exposed to so many potential horrors at the same time as we are today. So if you temporarily withdrew your attention to climate protection in order to cope with a pandemic, that is simply human. Which doesn’t change the fact that climate change is arguably the greatest existential threat in our history, and just like a virus, it cannot be talked about. Time to get back into action. The good news is: we can meet the challenge. With knowledge, willpower, positive thinking, creativity, the love of life on our planet and a bit of personal heroism, as you need in a thriller. From now on we all - each of us, including you - play a leading role! Scientifically sound, exciting and never without humor, Frank Schätzing creates various scenarios of our future in which we have failed and won. We get to know the protagonists and antagonists, those responsible from politics, business and society, meet activists, deniers and conspiracy theorists, before the view opens up to the overwhelming panorama of the feasible and the author shows ways how we can escape the climate trap and everything is still good , no, can get better. Saving the world is possible - if we only want to.
