Climate change has had several detrimental results, including the massive influx of climate refugees that caused the War of the Walls, pitting groups of migrants against the world powers refusing to welcome them. Environmentalists, like communists in the time of McCarthyism, are now hunted, imprisoned, and eliminated, and as a result have taken up arms to defend themselves. Laurianne, almost 80 years old, learns that she is going to die in a few hours due to an event that will destroy a portion of humanity. This novel retraces her life, from her birth in 1979 to her last moments. Through a family saga full of environmental activists, we relive the historic events when everything changed dramatically. We cross paths with Thatcher, Khomeini, Sartre, Giscard, Brigitte Bardot, as well as Macron, the yellow vest movement, Greenpeace, Friends of the Earth, and the French Green Party, not to mention climate change, oil spills, nuclear power, extinction of species, neoliberalism, and the rise of Islamist terrorism. This fascinating, original work, written with exquisite skill, tells the story of how we let things happen, how we went off track over the course of decades and condemned life on our plant. We Are Dying of Being So Hated is the book about the environmental and political decline of our species.
