Climate: It is a moral issue

issue cover 291 Buy this issue Join Resurgence Free e-cards

In the July/August issue of Resurgence & Ecologist we focus on the issues that really matter: caring for our increasingly damaged environment and facing up to climate change; rebuilding sustainable economies and relations with Nature; supporting localisation; peace and social justice.

In this issue, Jonathon Porritt welcomes the timely intervention of Pope Francis in the climate change debate, his calls to move beyond a consumerist culture and his challenge to world leaders.

Helena Norberg-Hodge delivers a thoughtful critique of the excesses of globalism and its pernicious effects. Taking a historical perspective, Jeremy Seabrook warns us against the complacent assumption that today's industrialised world can only improve.

In contrast, in our arts pages, Blake Morrison writes of poetry and Nature, Rebecca Hossack reviews the exhibition of Australian Indigenous art at the British Museum, and we launch an exciting new Resurgence Poetry Prize for 2015.
