Advance Praise for Under the Sky We Make

One of Bustle's Most Anticipated Books of March 2021

The move from exploitation to regeneration is indeed critical if we are going to have a chance in the global warming fight--and since this decade is critical, this book comes at the right moment! --Bill McKibben, author Falter: Has the Human Game Begun to Play Itself Out?

"As the world faces more and more strange weather brought about by climate change, we'll all be forced to confront its impact on our lives. Thankfully, Kimberly Nicholas' Under the Sky We Make is here to show all of us how we can save the world, just by making meaningful changes in our own lives." -Bustle

This compelling book about climate change really packs a punch, because climate scientist Nicholas relentlessly brings things down to the personal level....Libraries wondering if they really need another title on climate change should rest reassured; this is a realistic, accessible, and clarion call for change...Students will enjoy Nicholas's wry observations and appreciate her approachable insights as well as her key take-aways from every chapter. --Booklist (starred)

"Lund University climate scientist Nicholas delivers a user-friendly survey of the current state of the knowledge on climate change...Readers looking to save the world--and humanity--should take an interest in this harm-reducing program." -Kirkus

"In these pages, Dr. Kimberly Nicholas takes us by the hand to explore our most important questions about the climate crisis: "What's happening? What next?" And-most importantly-'how do I leverage my power to help make things better for everyone, for generations to come?' Educational and galvanizing, this book is part memoir, part exposé, part warm conversation with a friend-and it is a soul-stirring call to action." --Dr. Lucy Kalanithi, Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine, Stanford University, and widow of Paul Kalanithi, author of When Breath Becomes Air

A beautiful book--wise, painful, transformative--about all that we might still save. Reading it forced me to dig deep within myself, to try to find answers to what I cared about most, what I believed. --Jayson Greene, author of Once More We Saw Stars
