Hurricane Harvey jolted Houstonites out of their homes and armchair television viewers out of their comfort zones, especially in light of rapid increase of “500-year hurricanes” devastating the region in the past five years. A month earlier, a newly released book had asked readers to hear not only the cries of their countrymen and women but the chronic ache of injustice among climate change victims around the world.
The title of Sharon Delgado’s new book shifts the topic of climate change out of its usual dimensions, which too often buck wildly from well-corralled layers of scientific research into the muddier bog of political rhetoric.
Through crisp storytelling, personal experience and articulate up-to-the-minute research, Love in the Time of Climate Change posits a theory that we must deeply understand but look beyond both. We must act not only with our minds but with our hearts and our feet to safeguard all members of our human family during the current age and stage of climate change.
