Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and a climate change activist, does an excellent job at painting a picture of the reality of climate change. This inspiring book shines a light on the extent of the climate crisis and its affects around the globe, and its intersection with poverty and inequality. The book tells the stories of “everyday people” from all parts of the world who have felt the effects of climate change and have decided to do something about it. She raises the alarm at the current and potential future issues arising from climate change while also highlighting that solutions created through lived experiences can grow into global ideas, producing positive and long-lasting change.
This book changes the narrative of climate change from being scientific data and predictions to the lived experiences of others. This book does not contain practical advice and information on how to reduce your carbon footprint and live a more sustainable life, but is a must read for those wanting to learn about climate change and the extent of the crisis. It will open your eyes and help you understand why climate change needs to be taken seriously and be at the forefront of decision making. It will inspire you and get you thinking about the next steps you can take to do your part in tackling climate change.
