    I received a copy of this book through Goodreads First Reads program As should probably be evident by the subject matter global warming , this is not a warm fuzzy read I had to break up my reading of this with some lighthearted fiction to avoid feeling utterly mired in despair From a research standpoint, there wasn t much presented here that I didn t already know about The author did introduce some younger activitists battling climate change, and reading about their experiences was interesting It was encouraging to see the statistics the author presented about younger generations being concerned about the climate and taking a broad global outlook to probelms, as opposed to a narrow nationalistic one While that is a leap in the right direction, I do wonder if there will be enough time for the next generation to implement changes, or if the idealism in those surveyed will stagnate with age The book does have a younger voice, and reading this, I picked up a sense of frustration shared by many that an older, decaying generation seems to prefer that a planet die with them, rather than change the status q...

    This book provides important context and insight for the continuing fight against climate change As a millennial, I was especially interested in the perspective of the author regarding the specific challenges millennials face when considering climate change as a long term threat I thought the book was a good balance of old information why climate change is important, why climate change is real , and several premises about how millennials are specially affected and have specifically attacked the problem the author posits that some of these solutions are millennial specific I thought the tone was a little young millennials are hitting their 30s now, and I don t think the chip on the shoulder, not allowed to sit and the big kids table angle fit with me as a millennial, in addition to edging really near the edge of overgeneralizing about a whole bunch of people namely, a global cohort of individuals within a certain age range especially since most data was extremely US and Canada centric I become interested in the individual stories and examples woven in became much compelling as the book went on I hated the first guy, a dude trying out self sustainable farming in Canada , and found myself eager to read the second half of th...

    I enjoyed all the different stories in this book some of the individual situations I had heard a little bit about at the time, so it was interesting to go in depth but I really did not care for the author s writing style and felt like I was just rolling my eyes every other line by the end of the book At one point, he describes how he was hungover at a meeting with some Wall Street financial advisors because he had gone to see a band perform the night before, and he told his friends he only wanted to have a couple Miller high lifes because he had this important meeting the next day, but then the band ended up being so cool and eclectic that he couldn t resist just throwing back the Miller high lifes, and so he ended up being hungover for like half this meeting And in case you re wondering, no, his being ...

    This book has a significant amount of selection bias in the research and an almost unpalatable amount of generalization of ideas from single data points While the author obviously met with and interviewed a number of people as well as doing a fair amount of research, the conclusions reached in the book are narrowly focused and not ...

    This is one of the important books I have read in recent years It is a optimistic look at our upcoming future, so long as we all recognize that climate change IS HAPPENING and we CAN do something about it As a person who has read at least a dozen books on the subject of climate change, this is the first written by a millennial who will be among those most affected by climate change that sad to say my generation and the...

    As to the title premise, I d still say yes, we are and no, it s not their fault Although the demographics are in the future s favor as far as this goes, the ones running the status quo will continue lining their pockets while there s still a planet to pillage..So as usual, we ll react to the situations we create, because it s the path of least social resistance.And for the record, this isn t how a real...

    Yes.There s still people in the trenches making some progress, and they re gaining traction as the boomers die off but really there s not enough time left for a few decades of gradual power transfer.The most inspiring story is that of Paul who gave up on the whole endeavo...
