Themes: Climate Change/ Environmental issues
Twelve caring people from diverse sections of the community speak out on their feelings about climate change – and what ordinary people can do about it. The twelve in the book are all climate change activists and include a vet, a teacher, a nurse, and an insurance broker. There is surprising humour in some of the stories as we read about ordinary people doing extraordinary things for the cause in which they believe so passionately. However, underneath it all is the dark whisper that unless something is done on a major scale NOW it is already almost too late.
