As the climate crisis grows ever more more urgent, many wonder why our society doesn’t seem to be engaged in resolving the issue. This puzzling and pervasive passivity has aroused a very real sense of foreboding for younger generations who expect, and increasingly are demanding responsible solutions from the generations who created the problem that assure a livable future.
Inspired by the renowned climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe
’s new book titled, Saving Us: A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World
, Amazing Earthfest convenes an online community conversation to explore why, according to Hayhoe, “ In the U.S., seven out of ten say they wish they could do something to fix it but half of them don’t know where to start and only 35% say they ever talk about it, even occasionally”.
As a focal point for participating in this conversation, we suggest festival participants listen to the recent recorded interview with Katharine Hayhoe on the University of Utah’s Radio West program with Doug Fabrizio, titled, Saving the Future with Katharine Hayhoe

Let's get together to share our personal thoughts, questions and concerns about what we can do to help reduce the worsening impacts of Earth's climate crisis.
