56% of young people believe that humanity is doomed because of climate change. In Climate Optimism, Zahra presents the most promising areas of climate action, why they matter, and how you can get involved in them. She unpacks the cognitive biases that make optimism difficult to cultivate along with the encouraging environmental trends of the last decade and examples of communities in the Global South pioneering unique solutions to the climate crisis.

Climate Optimism is an essential read with a beautiful reminder that hope is a much more sustainable motivator than doom and gloom ever could be.”
—Leah Thomas

“I don’t know if we’re going to be able to overcome the climate crisis—but I know that if we succumb to nihilism we have no chance. There’s a good kick in the pants in these pages!”
—Bill McKibben
