What you need to know, currently.

Some of our favorite climate leaders collaborated on a new book, Not Too Late: Changing The Climate Story From Despair To Possibility. According to project organizers the book is for, “anyone who is despondent, anxious, or unsure about climate change and seeking answers. As the contributors to this volume make clear, the future will be decided by whether we act in the present—and we must act to counter institutional inertia, fossil fuel interests, and political obduracy.”

The anthology, edited by Rebecca Solnit and Thelma Young Lutunatabua, includes excerpts from climate icons including; Mary Annaïse Heglar, Leah Stokes, Julian Aguon, adrienne maree brown, and Jacquelyn Gill — just to name a few.

The book is now available to order (my copy is in the mail!)
