      Dahr Jamail presents The End of Ice

      Dahr Jamail presents The End of Ice: Bearing Witness and Finding Meaning in the Path of Climate Disruption.

      After nearly a decade overseas as a war reporter, acclaimed journalist Dahr Jamail returned to America to renew his passion for mountaineering only to find the slopes, he had once climbed, have been irrevocably changed by climate disruption. In his new book The End of Ice, we follow Dahr Jamail as he embarks on a journey to the geographical front lines of this crisis—from Saint Paul, Alaska to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef—to discover the consequences to nature and to humans of the loss of ice.

      Like no other book, The End of Ice offers a firsthand chronicle of the catastrophic reality of our climate situation and the incalculable necessity of relishing this vulnerable, fragile planet while we still can.

      “What a strange and compelling paradox this book offers: to fall in love with the Earth and all that we are losing, to let our hearts open to the deepest grief, and then trust that our grieving opens us to profound love.”—Margaret Wheatley, author of Leadership and the New Science

      Dahr Jamail is a Truthout staff reporter for and a TomDispatch regular. He is a recipient of numerous honors, including the Martha Gellhorn Award for Journalism and the Izzy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Independent Media. His previous books include The Will to Resist, and Beyond the Green Zone: Dispatches From an Unembedded Journalist in Occupied Iraq. According to historian Howard Zinn, Dahr Jamail is “a superb journalist, in the most honorable tradition of that craft.”
