Just Cool It!: The Climate Crisis and What We Can Do

4:00 PM - 4:45 PM

Just Cool It!: The Climate Crisis and What We Can Do

Just Cool It! is a resounding post–Paris Agreement wake-up call about the urgency of the climate crisis that offers a range of practical solutions—and above all, hope. David Suzuki and Ian Hanington offer a comprehensive look at the current state of climate science and knowledge and the many ways to resolve the climate crisis, imploring us to do what’s necessary to live in a better, cleaner future. When enough people demand action, change starts happening—and this time, it could be monumental.
