For January, the book discussion group has chosen to read Finding Higher Ground: Adaptation in the Age of Warming by Amy Seidl.
From the publisher:
An ecologist takes the uniquely positive–yet realistic–position that we can adapt and persist despite the inevitable effects of climate change.
While much of the global warming conversation rightly focuses on reducing our carbon footprint, the reality is that even if we were to immediately cease emissions, we would still face climate change into the next millennium. In Finding Higher Ground, Amy Seidl takes the uniquely positive-yet realistic-position that humans and animals can adapt and persist despite these changes.
- Listen to an interview with the author at Wisconsin Public Radio.
- Watch the author give an overview of her work in this brief video: Amy Seidl – Our Adaptive Future
- Read a review of the book from Publisher’s Weekly.
The library has borrowed additional copies of the book from other libraries for patrons to check out; you may also request a copy specifically for yourself through MeLCat, the statewide interlibrary loan database.
The Discussion Group will meet on Wed. Jan. 25 at 7pm in the lower-level conference room. Join us!
