About the Book
In Climate Generation: Awakening to Our Children’s Future environmentalist Lorna Gold issues a clarion call to take immediate action on climate or risk bequeathing a stark legacy to future generations.
Lorna shares her personal journey in coming to understand what ‘climate change’ means to her both as an activist and as a mother who is fearful for her children’s prospects in a world that hovers on the brink of destruction.
Rather than simply lament the grave situation facing our planet, however, Climate Generation offers the reader hope and a manifesto for change. Lorna shows readers how, by making comparatively modest changes in our day-to-day lives, we can play our part in transforming the world around us, while also explaining how we can call on the political elite to embrace policies that will bring about real and meaningful reforms.
Climate Generation is an impassioned plea to parents, grandparents and all who care about our planet to act now in creating a world where children come first.
