The Emmy Award-winning creator of GASLAND tells his intimate and damning, personal story of our world in crisis. With a foreword by Bill McKibben.
The rules have changed.
The water has changed.
The climate has changed.
The truth has changed.
We must change.
In The Truth Has Changed, Josh Fox turns the rapid-fire shocks that are remaking the very fabric of our lives - writing as a first responder, a reporter, a documentarian, and an activist - into art, literature, and at least one answer to the question of what the future holds.
Our normal isn’t normal anymore.
The paradigm shift that global warming represents parallels a paradigm shift in how we process truth. Both deeply affect democracy.
Josh Fox has had a front row seat - a first responder after 9/11, filming the Deepwater Horizon spill close up from the air and on the ground, a member of Bernie Sanders’s delegation of the Democratic Platform Committee, risking his life to cross a bridge on Thanksgiving Day at Standing Rock, traveling the nation and the world, shooting his films, talking to people everywhere he goes.
The Truth Has Changed is his first book, the companion to his new one-man show of the same title, and it’s beautiful.

Strap Yourself In ... It's a Ride!
This short book is long on shock. Performed as a play in Scenes rather than Chapters, it reaches your emotional center more than a straight-up novel ever could. If you thought the levers controlling planet Earth in the cosmos were still kind of under your control, or could be if you took a little more interest, disabuse yourself of this thought now. You think that passionate right-minded people can set things right with the environment and the climate? Press Reset now. You thought that certain influential people were on your side? Better check the team jerseys ... they weren't! Where to go from here? Work small groups. Think locally. Trust people you know. At least then you'll have company to watch the end-of-days fireworks. See you there! P.S. Trust any of this you shouldn't ... stage left Yoda isn't.

The truth has changed
This is a soul searching address for us earthlings to figure out how we deal with our truth. If you found truth with “Garland” then “The Truth has Changed” will have you thinking through from now on.
