This book is a guide through the difficult emotions of climate activism, and we are lucky to have it. It helped me understand how I cope with the enormity of the challenges we face, and I bet it can help you too.
Guides us on the inner journey involved in embracing the truths about the climate crisis, processing our upset over its severity, and awakening the love and courage it will take to solve it.
There are many intervention points to address the climate emergency, but the most important one is within each of us - not by changing our lightbulbs but by owning our power. Facing the Climate Emergency is an invaluable roadmap for everyone who wants to move beyond despair into effective action. Read it and let's get to work!
Both intellectually rigorous and emotionally attuned to the needs of readers, Facing the Climate Emergency is unique in its field. ...Margaret herself has done the difficult emotional work that our present crisis requires, and because of this she has become a sober, prophetic voice that can cut through the din of apathy. I pray that her work continues and grows. God knows we need it.
This is one of the most hopeful books I’ve read in recent years.
This is the most powerful, honest, and psychologically astute book on climate change I’ve ever read.
Boy, is this ever the book I needed now!! Facing Climate Emergency is just the dose of sanity I needed. If you are filled with anxiety, reeling from the onslaught of bad climate news, do yourself and your loved ones a favor and read this book. There is no way around the crisis we face, and no way around the dread we feel except to gather up our courage and fight like hell for the Earth's future. I'm transformed and you will be too.
Margaret’s prescient writing and unflinching honesty helped to inform much of the psychological groundwork that underpins the work and philosophies of XR and the entire climate emergency movement.
