Holidays in the Anthropocene: Tourism and denial on a vanishing planet.

Anthropologist Amelia Moore examines the paradoxical relationship between travel and nature in The Bahamas - as human consumption and carbon accumulation bring chaos to the natural world, mass tourism drives global warming and threatens the places we go to 'get away from it all,' in a world getting away for us all.

Amelia is author of the book Destination Anthropocene: Science and Tourism in The Bahamas from the University of California Press.
