Publisher Description

An inspiring appeal for climate change from Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and spiritual leader of Tibet, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Saving the climate is our common duty. With each passing day, climate change is causing Pacific islands to disappear into the sea, accelerating the extinction of species at alarming proportions, and aggravating a water shortage that has affected the entire European continent. In short, climate change can no longer be denied—it threatens our existence on earth.

In this new book, the Dalai Lama, one of the most influential figures of our time, calls on political decision-makers to finally fight against deadlock and ignorance on this issue and to stand up for a different, more climate-friendly world and for the younger generation to assert their right to regain its future.

From the voice of the beloved world religious leaders comes an eye-opening manifesto that empowers the generation of today to step up, take action, and save our environment.

Quotes

  • “It’s impossible for any narrator to embody the Dalai Lama’s ineffable energy, humor, and calmness of mind; however, Brian Nishii does an admirable job. Angelo Di Loreto’s deep and commanding portrayal of Franz Alt brings the gravity and dangers of climate change to the forefront.”

    - AudioFile
  • “This slim volume is written in support of young climate activists and intended to urge politicians to address the immediacy of global warming…The first two sections are written by Alt, giving a wide view of climate change and global activism efforts. The third section presents the Dalai Lama’s support of environmental issues…In conversation, the authors also reflect on topics including the 2106 Paris Agreement and the concept of universal responsibility.”
