Book Synopsis

Solving the Climate Crisis is an easy to read solutions-based book that offers actionable advice readers can take to create lasting changes in their communities. The book is filled with hope that by working together, we can build a sustainable future by using science, and evidence-based solutions to reimagine our economic, political, and social systems, to stabilize the climate and restore biodiversity.

We hear about it on the news every day, but climate change can be confusing. Are we doomed? How did we get here? What can I do about it? These are some questions you have probably asked yourself.

In Solving the Climate Crisis, Palmer Owyoung deconstructs climate change to understand how we got here and looks at how we can create a better future by building a nature-based economy in which we live in balance with our environment. Not only will this save us from the worst effects of climate change, but it will also save millions of lives, save trillions of dollars, create jobs, lower health care costs, reduce pollution, lower energy costs, and create a more stable economy

Having founded a company devoted to addressing climate change through sustainable, energy-efficient homes, I was already attuned to the urgency of environmental preservation. However, I was amazed by this meticulously researched book, which offers an in depth exploration of climate change's nuances — its pivotal figures, governmental policies, economic obstacles, as well as many success stories and further actionable solutions that anyone can achieve. While acknowledging the serious issues our Earth is facing, the approaches are a measured optimism for its mitigation.

This book is indispensable for those committed to shaping a greener future, big or small. Highly recommend!
