Bravo. The new edition of TIME focuses on the climate crisis -one of only five times the magazine has devoted an entire issue to a single topic. 2050: The Fight For Earth comes 30 years after TIME’s first climate issue, when they put “Endangered Earth” on the cover as Person of the Year in 1989. The threat to our planet posed by climate change, TIME thought back then, to be the most important story of the year. Unfortunately life on Earth is still in danger 2019.

Features Include: An essay by author Bill McKibben that flashes forward to 2050, looking back on the steps society took to adjust to or stop climate change. And reporting from every continent with viewpoints on climate change from Al Gore, Jane Goodall, Angelina Jolie and Graca Machel, founding member of The Elders. Plus the five big changes that are key for humanity to survive a warming climate and the tech innovations that would need to happen + more.
