Saving Us by Katharine Hayhoe

Sold By : WE The World
Highlights:

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.

Drawing on interdisciplinary research and personal stories, Hayhoe shows that small conversations can have astonishing results. Saving Us leaves us with the tools to open a dialogue with your loved ones about how we all can play a role in pushing forward for change.

Hope, But Demand Justice by Pat Hynes

Sold By : WE The World
Highlights:

Pat Hynes’s understanding of the wide range of issues covered in HOPE, BUT DEMAND JUSTICE is guided not only by her scientific expertise and training as a researcher but also, and very importantly, by compassionate intelligence. Her empathic intelligence shines through whether the subject she writes about concerns the plight of violence-and poverty-battered families fleeing across national borders (including ours) or the unbelievably wasteful and extravagant use by the US government of its citizens’ tax dollars for weapons and war or the plight of fire-ravaged forests and communities due to runaway global warming or the deep physical and psychological/moral scars suffered by military veterans of the US and other countries or the fate of women and girls everywhere who, she makes clear, always bear the heaviest brunt of poverty, violence, food scarcity, and sexual exploitation.

There is The Fluff, a penguin; Creamy, a harp seal; Tomas, a black bear; Flora, a polar bear; and Lady Athabasca, a whooping crane, among others. Each of them has suffered from global warming and the neglect of the environment, and wants to do something about it. They jump on a magical train powered by positive thoughts and take off to let others know about the problems Earth’s creatures are facing. Soon afterward, they travel to Santa Fe and pick up two young girls, Marina and Joanna, who record their incredible trip. The group travels east (as well as north and south) and along the way finds other friends who have endured hardship from fire, drought, and hurricanes. Their final destination is the White House where they hope their call for help is heard. With this book, young readers can join The Fluff and friends on the Global Warming Express to save our beautiful planet from pollution and global warming. It will be a trip worth taking!
