About the book
Environmentalist Lorna Gold issues a clarion call to take immediate action on climate change or risk bequeathing a stark legacy to future generations. Lorna shares her personal journey in coming to understand what ‘climate change’ means to her both as an activist and as a mother who is fearful for her children’s prospects in a world that hovers on the brink of destruction. Rather than simply lament the grave situation facing our planet, however, Climate Generation offers the reader hope and a manifesto for change.
Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, "Climate Generation: Awakening to Our Children's Future" is a unique and seminal contribution to the growing body of environmental protection and reclamation literature and should be a part of every community and academic library collection.
Lorna Gold has given all of herself to this small book. She takes us on an anguished journey into the heart of the climate crisis, and emerges emboldened — with a radical, utterly convincing hope that we can spring into action to protect the future of everything, and everyone, we love most.
We need more narratives on climate change so that people are encouraged to make it a personal issue in their lives. This compelling personal story of a mother and activist makes that emotional connection very well, as she wakes up to the danger her children are in and connects the dots on how to safeguard their future.
Written by one of the planet’s most stalwart and successful climate fighters, this is a truly necessary book. If you’ve ever wondered how you could dig in and make a real difference on the greatest problem the planet faces, wonder no longer. Just read.
