Dealing with climate change can feel overwhelming. Efforts to address it can feel futile.

But climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe insists all is not lost. In this week’s conversation about big books and bold ideas, MPR News host Kerri Miller talks with Hayhoe about her new book, “Saving Us: A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World.”

Hayhoe argues that collective action is still possible when it comes to climate change, and she offers practical and thoughtful ideas on how to pull the debate from the quagmire of politics and division.


  • Katharine Hayhoe is a climate scientist and the chief scientist for The Nature Conservancy.
