All We Can Save, Book Review

“Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis” is an anthology of essays and poems written by 41 essayists and 17 poets, all women.  In this collection of writings, this diverse group of women—scientists, journalists, farmers, lawyers, teachers, activists, innovators, wonks, and designers, across generations, geographies, and races share their expertise and insights regarding the climate crisis.  Although it is generally recognized that women and girls, especially those of color, are most often affected adversely by climate change, and although as made clear by these writings that women can be a vital instrument of change, their voices are often left out of the conversation.

Edited by Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, marine biologist and policy expert, and Dr. Katharine K. Wilkinson, an author, strategist, and teacher, ALL WE CAN SAVE does not paint a “doom and gloom” picture.  As the subtitle indicates,  the authors have told the truth about their particular area of expertise and have demonstrated the courage to pursue innovative solutions.

The book includes an extensive list of climate solutions and referenced organizations as well as a brief bio of each contributor.  You will be impressed and inspired by the accomplishments of these amazing women.
