Jelmer Mommers is a climate journalist based in Amsterdam. He knows most people prefer not to talk or even think about climate change and that is exactly why he wrote this book. Denial and despair are not the only possible responses to the climate crisis. Five years in the making, How Are We Going To Explain This? became a bestseller in The Ntetherlands. With this revised and updated ranslation, including responses to the Covid-19 pandemic, Mommers brings his characteristic blend of realism and optimism to the wider world.
