All We Can Save

by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson


For many of us, thinking of the sheer scale of human-induced climate change is paralyzing. It's scary, depressing, and we feel helpless. Even though most Americans agree that it's a serious problem, it's hard to know where to even begin to solve it as individuals.

Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine K. Wilkinson understand this despair. All We Can Save is a sweeping collection of essays and poetry written by women from across the spectrum of climate change experience and ethnicity – scientists, policymakers, activists, teachers, and artists.

While rigorous science and research into the problems we face are critical, women's expertise, insight, and experience have historically been left out. This book delves into the research behind climate and environmental science, while also probing the emotional, mental, and social implications of living through this crisis.

Favorite quote

As a scientist, I am both fascinated and shocked by how rapidly climate change is disrupting ecological relationships that evolved over millennia. But science also reminds me that we are not powerless.

- Jane Zelikova, ecologist
