This is an intriguing take on “save the world.” He starts by talking about stories and how sometimes we’re not drawn to an issue until the right story is told (for example, Claudette Colvin versus Rosa Parks – Claudette wasn’t considered “respectable” enough to ignite a movement).
He also talks about belief and how we may not think that scientists are lying, but we still struggle with believing them to the extend that we’re willing to take action. He explores these things through discussing historic events that can give us a non-climate change perspective. He also explores them through his own experiences and inaction.
It’s a really interesting book that has left me with a lot to think about, like my own inaction.
