    Abstract: Why is it difficult to talk about climate change? Debra Hawhee argues that contemporary rhetoric relies on classical assumptions about humanity and history that cannot conceive of the present crisis. How do we talk about an unprecedented future or represent planetary interests without privileging our own species? 'A Sense of Urgency' explores four emerging answers, their sheer novelty a record of both the devastation and possible futures of climate change.

    Abstract: "Unchecked climate change affects nearly everything on Earth, including the way humans communicate. In A Sense of Urgency, Debra Hawhee focuses our attention on new communication strategies that are emerging around the global climate crisis. At the heart of the story Hawhee tells are the challenges that our ecological future poses to rhetoric, and how those challenges demand that we learn to privilege more than our pasts and ourselves. The challenges of imagining futures under dramatically different climate conditions, of communicating climate science, and of offsetting human privilege all expose the limits of rhetoric as conceived by ancient Greek and Roman thinkers. The most glaring limit is the prominence those thinkers granted to precedent. When it comes to the climate crisis, precedent is not up to the task of addressing the problem at hand. Climate activists, scientists, artists, and scholars are trying to overcome this limitation, and A Sense of Urgency examines four departures from rhetoric's playbook that can be helpful in this struggle. Each of these departures presents new resources and different means of intensification in response to situations with few to no precedents. For Hawhee, thinking with these departures, and the attendant rhetorical strategies, can help people fathom both what is happening and what will happen if action is not taken. In this way, A Sense of Urgency is an indispensable guide in our search for new imaginative pathways"--
