Description

United Nations Champion of the Earth, climate scientist, and evangelical Christian Katharine Hayhoe changes the debate on how we can save our future in this nationally bestselling “optimistic view on why collective action is still possible—and how it can be realized” (The New York Times).

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.

    Finally, I feel good about my place in this mess we call climate change. Factual and sober yet hopeful and empowering, "Saving Us" lends great strength to the fight for a healthier Earth. Please, don't pass it up.
  • (5/5)
    Really good, some of the chapters seemed like stuff I’ve heard over and over again, but the stuff being accomplished out there and the writers ending message is powerful and makes me hopeful. It was easy to listen to and very informative.

    Katharine Hayhoe provides her thoughts on how divergent interest can work together to tackle the world climate and environmental crisis. The book is worth the read from the given suggestions on how people can become involved in this huge task of saving on our planet. Dr. Hayhoe is hopeful that we can save our planet from the challenges of the climate and environmental crisis.
  • (5/5)
    A very timely and well written book. Hayhoe is clearly an excellent communicator about climate change and her ideas and stories show us a way forward. Talking about our shared values, bonding over them, and seeing how climate change impacts those we care about is the key to inspiring us to take action. This is a must-read for anyone who has even a little concern about what the next ten years will bring.
