In this cautionary but optimistic book, Figueres and Rivett-Carnac--the
architects of the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement--tackle arguably the
most urgent and consequential challenge humankind has ever faced: the
world's changing climate and the fate of humanity. In The Future We Choose,
the authors outline two possible scenarios for the planet. In one, they
describe what life on Earth will be like by 2050 if we fail to meet the
Paris targets for carbon dioxide emission reduction. In the other, they
describe what it will take to create and live in a carbon neutral,
regenerative world. They argue for confronting the climate crisis head on,
with determination and optimism. How we all of us address the climate
crisis in the next thirty years will determine not only the world we will
live in but also the world we will bequeath to our children and theirs. The
Future We Choose presents our options and tells us, in no uncertain terms,
what governments, corporations, and each of us can and must do to fend off
