Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World.

Climate scientist Professor Katharine Hayhoe gives on average 100 talks to
people around the world every year, according to her own calculations. At
the end of her (mostly virtual) engagements, she is always asked the same
question: what gives you hope? “I could be speaking to students at
Cambridge or a senior citizens home, it’s always right there at the top
of people’s minds,” she tells The Independent. “We’re desperate for
hope. If you go to any mainstream media outlet, the headlines are
depressing, scary, anxious, infuriating and enraging. 

Humans can’t keep
that up long term.” In the face of news about stronger hurricanes,
melting ice sheets and thawing permafrost, the Canadian-born scientist has
“made a practice of hope”. S

She searches and shares stories about
floating solar farms in China and river-fired power in remote Arctic
villages. She spends time talking at rallies and events calling for greater
action on the climate crisis. 

 Hope runs as a central theme throughout her
new book: Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a
Divided World. The book explores the politicisation of the climate crisis
from the US to the UK, increasing levels of climate anxiety among ordinary
people and what she views to be the solution finding hope and starting
conversations.
