"His writing is dull, but it feels reliable"

“Writing this book,” Porritt says, “has caused me more pain than any other I’ve written.”

He has had to confront the possibility that the human story ends in human-caused disaster. We know what we have to do, but we seem to have no inclination to do it. Yet the fact that we know what must be done is what gives Porritt and Mommers hope.
