Toolbox for hope

April 01st, 2022

In her third non-fiction title for younger readers ages 12 and older, Urgent Message from a Hot Planet: Navigating the Climate Crisis (Orca $24.95), Ann Eriksson looks at the science behind global warming and its impact on the environment as well as sharing easy actions we can all take to ameliorate the damaging effects. “Do something NOW!” is her clear message. With many photographs and illustrations by Vancouver-based Belle Wuthrich, this colourful book also highlights young people who are “climate heroes,” adult activists who are making a difference, and other role models from around the world working to fix the problems of climate change. “I encourage any interested youth – and their parents – to read this book,” says Elizabeth May, MP and former leader of the Green Party of Canada. “It is an amazing achievement – comprehensive and informative, stretching from climate science to the intersecting issues of inequality and racism. Ultimately, it is a toolbox for hope.” Ann Eriksson is a director of the Thetis Island Nature Conservancy and works for the SeaChange Marine Conservation Society restoring nearshore marine ecosystems. 978-1459826328
