"Under the Sky We Make: How to Be Human in a Warming World"
Yes, the climate is warming, and yes, we human beings are causing this warming. And yes, things look very bad. But what can be done...and what can **we** do...right now? Our guest has some answers; she is Dr. Kimberly Nicholas, Associate Professor of Sustainability Science at the well-regarded Lund University in Sweden. Born and raised on a vineyard in Sonoma, California, Nicholas studied the effect of climate change on the California wine industry for her PhD at Stanford. Since then, she's published 50+ articles on climate and sustainability in leading academic journals; her research has also been featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Atlantic, and elsewhere. She joins us discuss her new book, "Under the Sky We Make: How to Be Human in a Warming World." Of this work, a starred review in Booklist noted: "This compelling book about climate change really packs a punch, because climate scientist Nicholas relentlessly brings things down to the personal level.... Libraries wondering if they really need another title on climate change should rest reassured; this is a realistic, accessible, and clarion call for change.... Students will enjoy Nicholas's wry observations and appreciate her approachable insights as well as her 'key take-aways' from every chapter."
