One Planet: How to be human in a warming world

On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet series, climate scientist Dr. Kimberly Nicholas discusses her new book, Under the Sky We Make: How to Be Human in a Warming World.

She argues we need people with the courage, compassion and imagination to transform themselves, and society, in the ways that science tells us are necessary to maintain conditions for life on Earth to be able to thrive.

She writes, "Saving ourselves from climate apocalypse will require radical shifts within each of us, to effect real change in our society and culture. But it can be done."
