It's warming. It's us. We're sure. It's bad. But we can fix it.

After speaking to the international public for close to fifteen years about sustainability, climate scientist Dr. Nicholas realized that concerned people were getting the wrong message about the climate crisis. Yes, companies and governments are hugely responsible for the mess we're in. But individuals CAN effect real, significant, and lasting change to solve this problem. Nicholas explores finding purpose in a warming world, combining her scientific expertise and her lived, personal experience in a way that seems fresh and deeply urgent: Agonizing over the climate costs of visiting loved ones overseas, how to find low-carbon love on Tinder, and even exploring her complicated family legacy involving supermarket turkeys.

In her astonishing book Under the Sky We Make, Nicholas does for climate science what Michael Pollan did more than a decade ago for the food on our plate: offering a hopeful, clear-eyed, and somehow also hilarious guide to effecting real change, starting in our own lives. Saving ourselves from climate apocalypse will require radical shifts within each of us, to effect real change in our society and culture. But it can be done. It requires, Dr. Nicholas argues, belief in our own agency and value, alongside a deep understanding that no one will ever hand us power--we're going to have to seize it for ourselves.

    Boken handlar för mycket om författarens privatliv. Glest med information om det som är bokens syfte, dvs hur vi ska klara klimatmålen. Jag rekommenderar Wütendes Wetter av Friederike Otto istället.

  2. The book on climate I wish everyone would read
    Wilhelm, 22 juni 2021

    In "Under the Sky We Make", Kimberly Nicholas manages to tactfully summarize the climate crisis. With her elegantly simple framework -It's warming. It's us. We're sure. It's bad. But we can fix it - Dr. Nicholas convenes the seriousness of the situation with a balance of personal anecdotes and scientific references, while delivering a sense of agency to the reader. This is the book on climate I wish everyone would read.

    The book stands out from other climate books in two main ways. <... Läs hela recensionen

  3. Best book on climate and what to do about it
    My Schüldt, 2 maj 2021

    This is a wonderful book: practical science at its very best. It's easy to read, full of personal stories, down-to-earth, practical, comprehensive - and funny. Buy, beg, borrow or steal a copy - I can't see you regretting it.

  4. Personlig bok om mänskligehetens ödesfråga
    Toya Westberg, 29 april 2021

    Att genom personliga reflektioner kunna tydliggöra allvaret i klimatkrisen, och med djup kunskap i klimatvetenskap filosofiskt visa hur vi kan ändra våra beteenden för att lyckas räta upp den här sjunkande skutan innan det är för sent.
