The Halton Climate Collective Reads campaign continues to engage our community about the complex issues of climate change as we read Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World by Katharine Hayhoe, an educational and inspiring book to bring everyone together to act on climate. A Canadian climate scientist living in Texas, Hayhoe negotiates distrust of data, indifference to imminent threats, and resistance to proposed solutions with ease. Over the past fifteen 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. Drawing on interdisciplinary research and personal stories, Hayhoe shows that small conversations can have astonishing results.
On Nov 18, Dr. Hayhoe will speak directly with our community through a virtual event. More details will be available in the coming weeks; registration for this event will open on Nov 1.
HCC Reads aims to engage the residents of Halton in reading, listening to and asking about climate change while learning how we can act to protect our planet. Borrow the book from our catalogue (under Related links below), and check back later for details about how you'll have the opportunity to ask Katherine questions.
The #HCCReads campaign is a joint project with the libraries of Oakville, Burlington, Halton Hills and Milton, HDSB, Greening Sacred Spaces Halton-Peel, and the Halton Climate Collective (HCC). Halton Climate Collective (HCC) is a group of local organizations focused on transforming Halton into a low-carbon, climate-resilient community.
