How a New Climate Language Can Create a Compelling Story of Humanity’s Restoration of a Safe Climate

August 25, 2023 @ 9:15 am

An engaging and thought-provoking webinar featuring the eminent Herb Simmens, former Executive Director of the New Jersey State Planning Commission, and celebrating the launch of the second edition of his remarkable book, A Climate Vocabulary of the Future. Attendees and readers of this book will learn the importance of terms like:  guilt per gallon, comfort rationing, heat hate, the Robin Carbonhood tax, Friends of the Enemies of the Earth, and the Kardashian Climate Index. Climate Vocabulary of the Future also includes a 2035 Vision that cleverly weaves many of the entries into an exciting and hopeful narrative for how the world can truly restore a safe climate. From unraveling the complexities of the crises we face to envisioning the transformative actions needed for a sustainable future, this webinar is a must-attend for anyone passionate about forging a positive path forward.
