Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World

Saving Us

By Katherine Hayhoe — chief scientist at The Nature Conservancy and an evangelical Christian — who offers an optimistic view on why collective action on climate change is still possible—and how it can be realized. Negotiates distrust of data, indifference to imminent threats, and resistance to proposed solutions by arguing that when it comes to changing hearts and minds, facts are only one part of the equation. Asserts that we also need to find shared values in order to connect our unique identities to collective action and offers a multilayered look at science, faith, and human psychology. Drawing on interdisciplinary research and personal stories, shows that small conversations can have astonishing results. Provides tools to open a dialogue with loved ones about how we all can play a role in pushing forward for change. Read more.
