Summary
"From a climate activist who has grown up in the decades in which climate change has transformed from abstract threat to urgent crisis, an exploration of how young people live in the shadow of catastrophe Warmth is a new kind of book about climate change--not a prescription or a polemic, but an intensely personal examination of how it feels to imagine a future under its weight, written from inside the youth-led climate movement itself. It is a critical excavation of the ways we talk about the climate crisis--at the national level, in our communities, and to ourselves--and a memoir of the ongoing struggle to sustain the difficult work of crafting "modest plans to divert annihilation." Though it addresses an issue of global concern, Warmth arises from a specific time and place: post-Sandy New York. Weaving sit-ins and snowstorms, synagogues and subway tunnels, Sherrell delves into the questions that feel most urgent to young people at our current crossroads. He explores how we conceptualize the crisis, the ethical implications of having children, our changing relationship to time, and the metaphors that mediate our individual and collective emotional responses--breaking "climate" out of its discursive box in the process. In seeking new ways to understand and respond to these forces that feel so far out of our control, Warmth lays bare the common stakes we face, and illuminates new sources of faith in our shared humanity"--
