Summary

Climate change is not about saving Earth. So what are we fighting for? Let’s embark on a journey to find the answers.

Since the late 1800s, global average temperature has increased by 2.1°F (1.2°C). Over the last 100 years, the global sea level has risen by about 8 in (20 cm).

Do you find it hard to translate climate change figures like these to the real world? The statistics and science are always in the news, but unless your life and livelihood are affected, it’s difficult to truly appreciate the significant impact behind the numbers.

Much of climate change communication focuses on high-level science and policies which make the topic abstract, distant, and impersonal. Researchers at Yale University found that personal stories can be much more effective in delivering climate change messages and encouraging advocacy behavior.

That’s what this book is about: the personal stories of people around the world. The humans of climate change. From the desolate icefields of the Arctic to the lush green rice paddies of the Mekong Delta, this book will take you on a voyage of discovery. You’ll find out:

  • The reasons why the Amazon rainforest is now a net contributor to global warming and the single best way to protect it.
  • The relationship between climate change and conflict in Afghanistan and how empowering women to have a voice has a direct positive effect
  • The link between a changing landscape and mental health issues of young Inuit in northern Canada.
  • How sea level rise of mere inches can affect the livelihood of 17 million inhabitants of the Mekong Delta, Vietnam.

I set out to explore climate change impact, but ended up realizing what we are truly protecting. 

So, get the audiobook, and let’s start the journey.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.
