Microcosm Publishing & Distribution - Under the Sky We Make: How to Be Human in a Warming World

Climate scientist Dr. Kim Nicholas has a mantra for living with the daunting reality of human-induced climate emergency: “It’s warming. It’s us. We’re sure. It’s bad. But we can fix it.” As an international public speaker on sustainability, she realized that the dominant messaging was discouraging people from action by fostering a sense of helplessness and despair. This book offers readers the powerful antidote of action-oriented optimism, asserting that individual humans CAN make significant and lasting changes to combat the climate crisis. The author draws on her personal experience of agonizing over decisions to fly overseas or eat turkey at Thanksgiving, with a voice that manages to be fresh, forgiving, sometimes humorous, ultimately hopeful, all without understating the urgency and tragedy of the Anthropocene.(This book may contain a sharpie mark on the top or bottom edge and may show mild signs of shelfwear.)
