      No one interested in simply playing nice openly chastises the United Kingdom parliament for its lack of action. They are the ones whose lives are going to be utterly wrecked.

      The climate crisis climate of crisis book the defining challenge of our generation. It is the system as a whole that is at issue, and every time we pick out bumbling morons to lament or fresh-faced geniuses to praise is a missed opportunity to see plainly the necessity of structural change.

Lanchester, who immersed himself in research for The Wall, was asked the big question: what will it take for the world to change in order to prevent the climate catastrophe? At an event last yearshe spoke passionately about how dimensions of gender and inequality intersect with the climate crisis, and make women and girls more vulnerable. When carbon dioxide CO2 is emitted into our atmosphere, it can hang around for a very long time.
