About the Book

Conceptual understanding of climate change is shaped not only by scientific research, but also by conceptual metaphors.  Which begs a question, what might we be missing?  

About the Author

Carter Brooks
Carter Brooks

Carter Brooks is an artist and philosopher of climate art whose work explores how humanity and civilization will evolve in a rapidly changing world.

In 2000, the year that Brooks’ daughter was born, a scientific report forecasted that the polar ice cap would disappear by the time she would reach her grandmother’s age. While environmentalists began to fret about the future, Brooks found himself compelled instead by the urgency of witnessing and discovering meaning in this profound event.

Carter’s installations of melting ice have been featured at numerous events and festivals, including MountainFilm in Telluride, The Art in Nature Festival, the Bioneers Conference, The San Francisco Green Film Festival, and numerous small events. Carter was selected as one of the first 50 presenters of Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project.

As entrepreneur Carter is also co-founder of Climate Earth, Inc.

Carter received a Master of Science from the Energy and Resources Group, UC Berkeley, and a Bachelor of the Arts in History from Yale University.
