The Collapse of Western Civilization: Satire Against Climate Change Deniers

Research output: Non-textual / digital / web - outputsWeb publication/siteAcademic


The Collapse of Western Civilization is a small book, published last year by climate historian Naomi Oreskes and historian of space science Erik Conway. Only a few months out, it already had quite some publicity. Also on me, Oreskes’ and Conway’s narrative had a bigger impact than other recent climate scenarios. The booklet of 104 pages made me turn off my gas heater for several days in the mid of winter.
