As the climate crisis accelerates toward the collapse of civilization and the natural world, people everywhere are feeling deep pain about ecological destruction and their role in it. Yet we are often paralyzed by fear.

Help is at hand. Facing the Climate Emergency gives people the tools to confront the climate emergency, face their negative emotions, and channel them into protecting humanity and the natural world.

Drawing on facts about the climate, tenets of psychological theory, information about the climate emergency movement, elements of memoir, coverage includes:

  • How to face the climate crisis and accept your fears, anger, grief, guilt, and other emotions
  • Turning negative feelings into tangible action to respond to the crisis
  • Rising to heroism, becoming a "climate warrior," and maximizing your impact by joining the Climate Emergency Movement
  • Support, including further reading, questions for self-reflection, and exercises to complete with like-minded groups

Written for the suffering multitudes struggling to cope and looking for answers, Facing the Climate Emergency provides the motivation, guidance, and support needed to leave "normal" behind and travel the path of the climate warrior, rising to the challenge of our time.
