What We're Fighting for Now Is Each Other : Dispatches from the Front Lines of Climate Justice
About this item
An urgent, on-the-ground look at some of the “new American radicals” who have laid everything on the line to build a stronger climate justice movementThe international scientific consensus is that we’re in trouble: catastrophic climate change is upon us. In 2010, Wen Stephenson woke up to this reality, and to what he calls “the spiritual crisis at the heart of the climate crisis,” and asked: “What will I do with the time I'm given?” He decided to walk away from his successful career as a mainstream journalist and join the growing climate justice movement. InWhat We’re Fighting for Now Is Each Other, Stephenson tells his own story of becoming an unlikely radical and the stories of the remarkable and courageous people he has worked alongside: old-school environmentalists and young climate justice organizers; frontline community leaders and Texas tar-sands blockaders; evangelicals, Quakers, and Occupiers. He argues that the movement is less like environmentalism and more like the great human rights and social justice struggles of the past, from abolitionism to civil rights. This is a fiercely urgent and profoundly spiritual journey into the climate justice movement at a critical moment—in search of what "climate justice," at this late hour, may mean.
