We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims.-R. Buckminster Fuller
An absolutely essential read for anyone who still has hope that humanity can save itself from the wreck it has made of this beautiful world. First you cry, then you act.
Focused on the climate crisis in all its forms, The Carbon Almanac is wonderfully thorough, democratic in intent and language, and should draw as many readers as the Whole Earth Catalog did for an earlier generation.
For too long the climate conversation has excluded the vast majority of people – many of which are directly impacted by changes to our climate in significant ways. The approach to creating The Carbon Almanac is truly inclusive. Relying on volunteers across the globe has resulted in information that provides varied perspectives and makes room for knowledge that has been historically excluded.
Readers from all backgrounds will find the information accessible and interesting, allowing them to take action in a way that is most meaningful to them, resulting in the change we need now more than ever!
The Arctic is warming up twice as fast as the rest of the Earth. If we want to conserve the Arctic and prevent catastrophic effects for the rest of the Earth, we will need to act better and faster. All together. The Carbon Almanac gives great input and understanding about the climate crisis, making it understandable for the broad public. To enable the public to make a change.
An approachable, hopeful guide to a subject that is otherwise paralyzingly scary. A tonic for inaction and a bid to save our species and the only planet capable of sustaining it in the entire universe.
It’s put together for folks like me, and maybe you, who are deeply concerned about the climate crisis, but are not scientists, don’t run alternative energy companies, and can easily start to feel overwhelmed by all the ways that we could/should move forward to make a difference—a place where fear of doing the work in the wrong way keeps us from doing anything beyond sticking with the status quo. The book is loaded with real life, eminently learnable tips, tools, and visuals. It’s both fun, and informative.
The book is just fantastic. I think it’s going to be a huge success, by which I mean to break out of the silo and perhaps cause a shift in a larger public discourse. That would be the absolute best outcome, of course.
Every action we take makes a difference - every day. It is up to each one of us the kind of difference we make and The Carbon Almanac helps us all find a way to take positive actions for the health of our planet and its inhabitants.
This book is a remarkably readable, digestible, and impactful exploration of climate science. It will change the world.
Changing our climate requires first changing our mindset about climate. This book is an exceptional resource to do just that
Mitigating climate change is one of the major challenges worldwide for the coming decades and requires a commitment from all of us. However, information on climate change is often complex. The Carbon Almanac uniquely puts together a large number of facts (including possible solutions) to enable everyone to assess what is going on.
