Noam Chomsky is an American linguist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, historian, social critic, and political activist.
Are we deranged? The acclaimed Indian novelist Amitav Ghosh argues that future generations may well think so. How else to explain our imaginative failure in the face of global warming? In his first major book of nonfiction since In an Antique Land, Ghosh examines our inability—at the level of literature, history, and politics—to grasp the scale and violence of climate change.
The extreme nature of today’s climate events, Ghosh asserts, make them peculiarly resistant to contemporary modes of thinking and imagining. This is particularly true of serious literary fiction: hundred-year storms and freakish tornadoes simply feel too improbable for the novel; they are automatically consigned to other genres. In the writing of history, too, the climate crisis has sometimes led to gross simplifications; Ghosh shows that the history of the carbon economy is a tangled global story with many contradictory and counterintuitive elements.
Ghosh ends by suggesting that politics, much like literature, has become a matter of personal moral reckoning rather than an arena of collective action. But to limit fiction and politics to individual moral adventure comes at a great cost. The climate crisis asks us to imagine other forms of human existence—a task to which fiction, Ghosh argues, is the best suited of all cultural forms. His book serves as a great writer’s summons to confront the most urgent task of our time.

Next month, world leaders will gather in Copenhagen at the United Nations Climate Change Conference to negotiate a new global climate treaty. In anticipation of this event, NASA has compiled a multimedia resource collection for editors and producers developing climate-related stories. Taking Earths Temperature, a short film explaining how researchers use computer models to study climate change, is one of the many resources included in the gallery.
Organized by topic, the videos, data visualizations, conceptual animations, and print-resolution images illustrate key concepts and discoveries in climate science. The compilation also features ten of NASAs most popular climate visualizations.
The gallery can be found at NASA’s Scientific Visualization Studio (http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/ClimateEssen…) and NASA’s Global Climate Change site (http://climate.nasa.gov/ClimateReel). Images and videos can be downloaded directly from those pages and may also be available by request.

This visualization illustrates Earth’s long-term warming trend, showing temperature changes from 1880 to 2015 as a rolling five-year average. Orange colors represent temperatures that are warmer than the 1951-80 baseline average, and blues represent temperatures cooler than the baseline.
