Right Here, Right NowNatalie Isaacs
How women can lead the way in the climate emergency.
'This critical decade is simultaneously a time for alarm and a time for great hope. We have to act like our own lives and the futures of everyone we love depends on it. Because that's the truth. And it's what this book is about.'
The science is clear: if we continue to burn fossil fuels at current rates, the Earth will continue to warm. Already, the consequences of climate change are upon us. Now, in this powerful call to action with optimism at its heart, the founder of the global climate action movement 1 Million Women explains why we all must act, wherever we are, and why, in this decisive decade, we must act now.
Recognised internationally for her inspirational and thought-provoking public speaking, Natalie Isaacs asserts in Right Here, Right Now that it is women, set to be most adversely affected by climate change, who have the will, the skills and the power in numbers to lead the way on this critical issue.
Impassioned yet clear-eyed, Natalie sets out what we as a community and as individuals can achieve in this decade and shares the wisdom of women who have inspired her, from local community leaders to international leaders, First Nations Elders to scientists, and activist campaigners to policymakers. The good news is, it's all possible -- we just have to unite as never before and get it done. Right here, right now.
'Natalie Isaacs takes us into still unused potential we have as women and shows us how to live climate responsibility in our daily lives.'
Christiana Figueres, former Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change
'A rallying call to women everywhere to be part of the solution for the climate crisis.'
Mary Robinson, former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
'If you feel overwhelmed thinking of the climate crisis and what it means for our kids then stop right here. This book is sustenance for the work we have to do ahead of us. It is hope.'
Rachel Kyte, former Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All
'Right Here Right Now is all about individuals getting engaged in the fight against climate change. Natalie Isaacs exemplifies that very message in her own life and in this book. Our voices and our actions are critical. Let's join the fight!'
Hilda Heine, former President of the Marshall Islands
