The Silence of Vanishing Things suggests an over reliance on scientific terminology and concepts might be quietly undermining the human ability to come to grips with the climate crisis. Through three essays and fifty four poems it calls for a shift toward a sacred, more poetic narrative to help break the silence and engage the human spirit in the fight of our times. Since language is only a context for action, it also celebrates activism, with a personal account of a largely unreported vigil by kayaktavists in June, 2015, aimed at the Shell Arctic drilling vessel, the Noble Discover.
