In spite of its disturbing implications, the impact of climate change on our physical environment can be difficult for us to understand or imagine. Moving from a memoir of a journey through an abundant yet fragile natural world to the daunting scientific evidence that climate change will lead to the degradation of nature and upheaval within society, this essay offers a lucid personal approach to the pivotal dilemma of our time. In a wide-ranging discussion that embraces science, history, art, language and identity, A Green Reef offers the reader an understanding of what climate change means for life on earth.

"Part biography, part cultural criticism, part jeremiad, Henighan's short volume ranges over the casues, prognoses and ethics of a warming world. Throughout the book, there is constant alarm at humanity's lack of alarmism." -- Times Literary Supplement review, November 8th, 2013, p. 27.
Praise for A Green Reef:
“Henighan writes with clarity, passion, and energy, exposing a deeply personal vision of how climate change may undermine the world we live in. At a time when most of the writing on this topic is done by scientists who debate data and argue methods, A Green Reef stands out as an evocative and emotional reminder of everything we have to lose unless we pay much closer attention to the world that surrounds us and the changes we are causing in it.”
– Evan D. G. Fraser, Canada Research Chair in Global Human Security and co-author of Empires of Food: Feast, Famine and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations
“Our small gestures towards environmental responsibility, which might be significant in the context of a large-scale effort to decarbonize civilization, are rendered meaningless by a society that fails to address the central issue of people in wealthy countries consuming resources at a rate that guarantees that within twenty to thirty years, people will begin to starve.”
Stephen Henighan speaks at St. Paul's College, University of Waterloo, October 23, 12:30 p.m.
