With a never-ending escalation of climate catastrophes and dire forecasts, is it foolish to believe the world can still be saved? These three authors say there’s still hope to turn things around, and they’re going to tell us why—and how. With Ever Green: Saving Big Forests to Save the Planet, John W. Reid, a senior economist at the indigenous peoples-focused green nonprofit Nia Tero, explores the secret world of megaforests. Only five of these stunningly large forests remain on earth, and protecting and expanding them may hold the key to stabilizing the climate crisis. One method Reid highlights is the indigigenous practice of forest stewardship. Other traditional practices like these can be found in environmental scientist Jessica Hernandez’ Fresh Banana Leaves: Healing Indigenous Landscapes Through Indigenous Science, which has been praised as “a groundbreaking book that busts existing frameworks about how we think about Indigeneity, science, and environmental policy.” Researcher Christina Conklin takes us from the forests to the sea with her exquisitely illustrate and mapped The Atlas of Disappearing Places: Our Coasts and Oceans in the Climate Crisis, hailed by Chicago Review of Books as “the rare coffee table book that’s also a call to arms.” Come ready to learn how to help save the only planet we’ve got.
