"A clarion call to summon the moral courage to 'rage against the dying' of the Earth . . . impassioned and well-reasoned." —Kirkus Reviews Even as seas rise against the shores, another great tide is beginning to rise—a tide of outrage against the pillage of the planet, a tide of commitment to justice and human rights, a swelling affirmation of moral responsibility to the future and to Earth's fullness of life. Philosopher and nature essayist Kathleen Dean Moore takes on the essential questions: Why is it wrong to wreck the world? What is our obligation to the future? What is the transformative power of moral resolve? How can clear thinking stand against the lies and illogic that batter the chances for positive change? What are useful answers to the recurring questions of a storm-threatened time? What can anyone do? Is there any hope? And what stories and ideas will lift people who deeply care, inspiring them to move forward with clarity and moral courage? Great Tide Rising is a powerful call to action from "a writer whose senses, heart, generosity, and intellect open in every direction" (Jane Hirshfield).
