‘And Then The Climate Changed’
Kids are growing up right now. Climate change is happening right now. Population is exploding, and the world continues to use up its natural resources. We are making the future right now, yet we don’t fully understand what to do to prepare our kids psychologically for it.
‘AND THEN THE CLIMATE CHANGED’ is the story of two women who fear the real and emotional impact of these rapid changes on their children. Jessica is an environmental leader who sees the slow pace of behavioral change despite her cutting edge knowledge of the technological and social solutions available to sustain our human community. Her friend, Beth, is a psychiatrist who understands the toll that social unrest, extreme weather, dislocation, and deprivation take on a human psyche. Together they have six children ranging in age from 2 to 22.
Jessica and Beth set off on a journey to answer a deceptively simple question, one that nonetheless has only just begun to be addressed by national leaders and recent scholarship.
What do we do with our children today to prepare them psychologically for tomorrow?
The powerful and often frustrating journey brings Jessica and Beth face to face with experts across a range of disciplines, from world leaders to scientists, mental health scholars and professionals, sociologists, religious and spiritual leaders, and experts in the technological advances that will help combat climate change.
