We're probably going to die, each of us, younger than we had imagined. Nothing is certain, but it looks probable. Are we at peace with people we've affected throughout our lives? How do we feel about the fact that we're going to die? How do we process and grieve that, and find a place of calm and joy without ignoring it? Without ignoring that it could be coming sooner than we had thought?

Sustainability scholar Jem Bendell looks to deep adaptation in the face of inevitable climate-induced social collapse - as the global system of carbon capitalism pushes life on this planet towards disaster, only a profound shift in the way we relate to the natural world, each other, and our own mortality can prepare us for the world that lies closer than we'd ever imagined.

Jem is author of the paper Deep Adaptation: A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy.
