Product Details


“Avi Chomsky’s essential primer on climate change goes beyond the usual scientific, technical, and policy dimensions to focus much-needed attention on the ways power and inequality matter too. It deftly and lucidly puts the impending ecological disaster in proper perspective, framing it as an environmental and social crisis.”
—Chad Montrie, author of A People’s History of Environmentalism in the United States

“In a world where everyone seems to have answers but only to the wrong questions, Chomsky offers clear, next-level inquiries into what science and technology can actually deliver. Should you buy an EV? Become a vegetarian? Invest in energy tech? Chomsky’s grounded and astute questioning charts a brave path through the dubious assumptions and hype holding us back from meaningful action.”
—Ozzie Zehner, author of Green Illusions and producer of Planet of the Humans

“When reading books or articles purporting to address the climate emergency, I typically find plenty to disagree with. But reading Aviva Chomsky’s Is Science Enough? Forty Critical Questions About Climate Justice, I found myself nodding my head all the way through. Dr. Chomsky asks all of the most crucial questions and answers each in clear-eyed, logical, fearless, plain-spoken prose. She brings to life the scientific, technical, and economic concepts that must be understood if predatory exploitation and degradation of the ecosphere, including our own species, is to be ended. Every climate bookshelf should include Is Science Enough? in a prime spot.”
—Stan Cox, author of The Green New Deal and Beyond

“This is a book every aspiring—or even seasoned—climate activist should read. Climate activism can only be climate justice activism, Aviva Chomsky argues, guiding future activists along the way on everything they need to know about the science and politics of climate change.”
—Giorgos Kallis, author of Limits: Why Malthus Was Wrong and Why Environmentalists Should Care

“Are you feeling a bit lost in the climate change debate? This book will provide a clear, concise, and incisive response to all your questions. This is one of the most important issues of the twenty-first century, and Is Science Enough? one of the most important books about it. Don’t miss it!”
—Federico Demaria, coauthor of The Case for Degrowth
