This book tries to balance optimism and realism in regards to climate change and our future, focusing in on "young people" (as the author calls them) and stories about how they are defying the status quo of chasing money and oil. The problem is that the author's intention is clearly to leave us feeling hopeful and motivated, but he asks the reader to make some pretty big leaps of imagination. For example, he implies in one chapter that a little girl shot up out of her seat during a speech and changed an important politician's mind about setting climate goals. He also wants you to believe that a man who worked in the oil fields then moved to New York to become an artist is somehow defying the oil industry. Overall it's an easy read and not a bad one, especially for young adults and teens looking for some inspiration to live a life that fights to protect our planet. Unfortunately, the author's optimism is not contagious.
