What We Have Instead: Poems by Gus Speth


After award-winning books on environment and scores of articles, this is Gus Speth’s first book of poetry. In it there are stories about people and their journeys, scathing but sometimes humorous commentary on current events, several reflections on climate risks and environmental loss and where that leaves us, and many other poems—philosophical, funny, or something else.
