Reviews

"Sasser conducted dozens of interviews and 'was struck by how common climate anxiety is among Gen Zers and how that translates into these anxieties about whether to have kids, ' she says. . . . The book places communities of color at the center of the discussion. 'This is an intersectional issue, ' Sasser says. 'Climate change hits communities of color differently. Heat events have an impact on pregnancy and birth outcomes, which have long-lasting effects on a child's growth and development. The people who are hit hardest are pregnant Black women, and the mental and emotional impacts are really hard on communities of color, too.'"
