Riders on the Storm – A Video Introduction to an Essential Book

  20 Aug '20   |  Posted by: Birlinn

Riders on the Storm: The Climate Crisis and the Survival of Being is an essential, urgent book from one of the most influential writers on the subject. It is an important book and a book we all should read, a book about the state of the planet today – but it is a hope- filled book which covers the collective trauma of clearance and collapse through history, our vulnerability as consumers and the required re-weaving of the basket of community, the re-rebuilding of the connections between ourselves, the land and our inner-lives that allow us to flourish as whole human beings in our whole world. Watch the video introduction to this book now (this is An Opus Earth video). Discover the hope for the future.

 McIntosh is no ideologue, he… manages to hold in balance an exploration of the profound depths of philosophy and spirituality, with well-argued support for consensus science.

– Kat Jones of Climate Fringe, a COP26 project of Stop Climate Chaos Scotland

 This is a very good book because it is balanced and positive. There is no despair here. The book is welcome because it is free from the hysterical emotions commonly evident on both sides of the climate change debate.

– Alan Massie in The Scotsman
