Is it time to embrace environmental change? is a book review of “Love Your Monsters: Postenvironmentalism and the Anthropocene”. It suggests that, rather than trying to turn back the clock to an earlier era where there weren’t so many of us and our impact on the planet wasn’t so big, we need to work with what we’ve got. It also suggests that if the environmental movement keeps looking back and trying to recreate the past, it will be part of the problem rather than part of the solution.
