A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World
by Katherine Hayhoe
Called “one of the nation's most effective communicators on climate change” by The New York Times, Katharine Hayhoe knows how to navigate all sides of the conversation on our changing planet. A Canadian climate scientist living in Texas, she negotiates distrust of data, indifference to imminent threats, and resistance to proposed solutions with ease. Over the past fifteen years Hayhoe has found that the most important thing we can do to address climate change is talk about it—and she wants to teach you how.
In Saving Us, Hayhoe argues that when it comes to changing hearts and minds, facts are only one part of the equation. We need to find shared values in order to connect our unique identities to collective action. This is not another doomsday narrative about a planet on fire. It is a multilayered look at science, faith, and human psychology, from an icon in her field—recently named chief scientist at The Nature Conservancy.
“It’s not an exaggeration to say that Saving Us is one of the more important books about climate change to have been written.” —The Guardian
“A must-read if we’re serious about enacting positive change from the ground up, in communities, and through human connections and human emotions.”—Margaret Atwood, Twitter
