Over the past few months, I have been privileged to be part of an amazing team working on a project that is near and dear to my heart. Getting the facts straight about Climate Change.
Through the efforts of hundreds of volunteers from around the world, the work is finished.
And, it’s about time.
When it comes to the issue of Climate Change we urgently need facts, not opinions. Insights, not statistics. And a shift from thinking about climate change as a “me” problem to a “we” problem.
The Carbon Almanac publishes today.
It is a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between hundreds of writers, researchers, thinkers, and illustrators that focuses on what we know, what has come before, and what might happen next. Drawing on over 1,000 data points, the book uses cartoons, quotes, illustrations, tables, histories, and articles to lay out carbon’s impact on our food system, ocean acidity, agriculture, energy, biodiversity, extreme weather events, the economy, human health, and best and worst-case scenarios. Visually engaging and built to share, The Carbon Almanac is the definitive source for facts and the basis for a global movement to fight climate change.
This isn’t what the oil companies, marketers, activists, or politicians want you to believe. This is what’s really happening, right now. Our planet is in trouble, and no one concerned group, corporation, country, or hemisphere can address this on its own. Self-interest only increases the problem.
Join me, today, in celebrating the launch of this extraordinary book.

We are in this together. And it’s not too late for concerted, collective action for change.
