Climate Reality Book Club and Island Press Present: Humanity's Moment with Joëlle Gergis
Join us for a conversation with author Joëlle Gergis on her book Humanity’s Moment: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope on April 25 at 6PM ET/April 26 at 10 AM AET. Joëlle will be joined by Environmental Music Prize founder Edwina Floch, an organization which amplifies the voices of artists who inspire action for climate and conservation. After the discussion, we'll open it up to audience Q&A. We hope to see you there!

From Island Press:
"In Humanity’s Moment, Joëlle takes us through the science in the IPCC report with unflinching honesty, explaining what it means for our future, while sharing her personal reflections on bearing witness to the heartbreak of the climate emergency unfolding in real time. But this is not a lament for a lost world. It is an inspiring reminder that human history is an endless tug-of-war for social justice. We are each a part of an eternal evolutionary force that can transform our world. Joëlle shows us that the solutions we need to live sustainably already exist—we just need the social movement and political will to create a better world. Humanity’s Moment is a climate scientist’s guide to rekindling hope, and a call to action to restore our relationship with ourselves, each other, and our planet.”
