AT WORK IN THE RUINS Finding Our Place in the Time of Science, Climate Change, Pandemics and All Other Emergencies

by | Read by Dougald Hine

Contemporary Culture • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

The former British journalist, now an innovative social entrepreneur, Dougald Hine says public discourse on a variety of human survival threats is uninformed and too narrow. Problems like climate change and pandemics may have outpaced our ability to control them, and traditional authorities such as science, journalism, and government should not be trusted to provide the guidance we need to turn these problems around. The author's performance is calming and often moving as he delivers his insurgent perspectives. His melancholy tone and relaxed pacing communicate acceptance, making him vulnerable to charges of cynicism. But his powerful performance of this important message will make listeners question their unexamined assumptions about the planet's future and what they can do about it.
