This will be a short review of John Dryzek’s forgotten classic Rational Ecology in the context of the challenge of abrupt climate change. Dryzek asks us to place ecological concerns first, and to look at these concerns in terms of the systems we use to make decisions. If we were all to follow Dryzek’s logic, we might develop the will to take decisive action to address the problem, which we currently don’t have. I will start by asking about climate change, summarize the book, and conclude by suggesting applications to the problem.
