In careful, measured tones, author/narrator Hope Jahren offers listeners an accessible--and sobering--assessment of how and why we are facing what she sees as our current inflection point in climate change. Pointing out that we've become increasingly practiced at not listening to scientists' warnings, she notes, "Only by seeing where we are can we ask ourselves if this is where we want to be." Full of data and memories, the audiobook's four sections, further broken into short chapters, make Jahren's message easier to absorb and ideal to listen to. She offers steps listeners can take toward positive change--small changes that can have beneficial impacts. Balancing careful, credible research and stories of human experiences, Jahren makes hard truths palatable and personable, offering hope to those who choose to act.
