Publisher's Summary

“An optimistic view on why collective action is still possible - and how it can be realized.” (The New York Times)

“As far as heroic characters go, I’m not sure you could do better than Katharine Hayhoe.” (Scientific American)

“A must-read if we’re serious about enacting positive change from the ground up, in communities, and through human connections and human emotions.” (Margaret Atwood, Twitter)

United Nations Champion of the Earth, climate scientist, and evangelical Christian Katharine Hayhoe changes the debate on how we can save our future.

Called “one of the nation's most effective communicators on climate change” by The New York Times, Katharine Hayhoe knows how to navigate all sides of the conversation on our changing planet. A Canadian climate scientist living in Texas, she negotiates distrust of data, indifference to imminent threats, and resistance to proposed solutions with ease. Over the past 15 years Hayhoe has found that the most important thing we can do to address climate change is talk about it - and she wants to teach you how.

In Saving Us, Hayhoe argues that when it comes to changing hearts and minds, facts are only one part of the equation. We need to find shared values in order to connect our unique identities to collective action. This is not another doomsday narrative about a planet on fire. It is a multilayered look at science, faith, and human psychology, from an icon in her field - recently named chief scientist at The Nature Conservancy.

Drawing on interdisciplinary research and personal stories, Hayhoe shows that small conversations can have astonishing results. Saving Us leaves us with the tools to open a dialogue with your loved ones about how we all can play a role in pushing forward for change.

Saving ME!

Katharine’s book is the best thing I’ve found to keep me headed forward to contribute what I can to resolving the horrendous problems we’ve created. I found so many good references, ideas, and special thoughts I can use to talk with others about. It was also a bonus that Dr. Hayhoe narrated the book herself. After listening to the entire book, and some chapters more than once, I feel like Katharine and I are on the same page, a friend I can reach out to and a confidante, if I get depressed again about the state of this world. Enjoy this excellent book!

Excellent Book on Being Effective in Dealing With Climate Change

An amazing book! I listened to Dr. Hayhoe read the book on Audible and used the Kindle copy to reread sections. Her narration was excellent!

The book covers an immense amount of information. It’s well organized. I didn’t need to jump back and forth. There are plenty of examples given for each topic, which helps one to see how to apply it to the situation at hand. The final chapter summarizes the book and explains how to use it.

The book is about climate change and covers the topic well. But it strikes me that this book can also guide one in talking about other difficult or controversial topics. The thoughts of where else this book would be useful were slightly distracting!

I highly recommend this book!

So much great information and effective approach

Many of Ms. Hayhoe’s talking points have been my talking points, so it’s not surprising that I loved this book. She gives such a great overview of the problems, “zombie arguments,” and examples of how to get the conversation started.

A main takeaway from the book revolves around the importance of starting conversations. Based on Yale Climate Communications data, I drew the same conclusion and I wrote an information-based novel as an effort to start these conversations. My hope was that using fictional characters would allow the readers to safely discuss the problems and solutions to provide a glimpse into what a carbon neutral world might look like.

I would like to read more from Katharine Hayhoe. She has a clear, strong voice.

My last excuse for not talking is gone

I have a lot of people in my circle who only talk about climate change to mock it. Dr. Hayhoe is patient, kind and insightful about how this feels. Nevertheless she has shown a way to at least begin to talk about climate change with at least a few people. I appreciated her help with not only the science, but with the social constructs which cause many to avoid action on climate. These are a large part of the reason more isn’t being done about climate change. You will learn something from this book, regardless of what your knowledge level is on the subject.

Great book if you're not sure about Climate change

Great book if you're not sure about Climate change or not sure how to talk about it & act. This is especially great if you're a Christian & not sure if its real or how we should approach it as a believer.

An Important And Relevant Book

The bad; very USA centric, I am British, living in the Philippines and was left feeling irrelevant. I skipped through most of the first three chapters due to the religious content and cringed a few other times. The good; very valuable and interesting statistics, excellent common sense advice, nice references and relevant stories, great narration. The author is a wonderful communicator.
