Atonement

I’m reading Atonement by Ian McEwan right now. I wondered, if only for a moment, what war our generation was fighting. What was so encompassing that our entire world was being affected by it daily? We’re not fighting the Germans or the Russians; we’re in a fight to save the planet from ourselves and the way we’ve been living since the industrial revolution. This is our war. WW II took millions of lives… what kind of casualties has this fight taken and will take in the future?
