What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming – Caroline Hamlin

This book radically reframes the approach for people to take to address global warming. To understand and make the most of this book, you have to suspend your historical assumptions and work with the material. The more the science and date that are presented to those who are not aligned with them, the more people go numb. Thinking is the frame of mind we use to address global warming and the facts we muster to demonstrate the case for taking action. Doing includes the actions we take. Being is about how we are each asked to be more emotionally present in the world. The first and second sections offer the usual remedies for responding to the Earth heating up. That said, what Stoknes presents in these two sections goes against climate change gospel. The third section on “being” makes  this book come alive and breaks new ground. Stoknes challenges the historical approach of all the “rock stars” who are leading the way on climate change with rationality and piles of data.
