More Americans care about climate change than we think--but in order to unite across the political spectrum around solutions, we need a bold, courageous new narrative about creating a sustainable world focused on a brighter tomorrow. Andreas Karelas brings an optimistic message that we don't often hear about: we have all the tools we need to solve the climate crisis and we're already building momentum. Climate Courage recognizes that people, not politics, are the agents of change that can create a more sustainable, equitable economy. But to engage people in climate solutions, we need a new way of framing the problem that's empowering rather than fear based. We can move past our collective despair and inaction if we work together in our communities towards a better vision of the future based on shared American values. Climate Courage highlights the bright spots in the climate fight and the stories of people of various political stripes finding common ground. Emphasizing the rate of job creation in the clean energy economy and the work of climate heroes on both sides of the aisle--including Republican mayors and governors, the military, faith communities, businesses, and community groups--Karelas shows us that climate solutions need not be polarizing. Americans from all walks of life will find inspiration and insights to build trust and heal the divide between red and blue America by connecting with each other and rediscovering the importance of gratitude, simplicity, and service in living fulfilling, meaningful lives.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Andreas KarelasPublisher: Beacon PressPublished: 09/29/2020ISBN: 9780807084885Pages: 248Weight: 0.70lbsSize: 8.40h x 5.50w x 0.70d
