Civic Ecology Lab's latest book explores how we can harness our social networks to fight the climate crisis. Against notions of the lone environmental crusader, Marianne Krasny shows us the power of "network climate action"—the idea that our own ordinary acts can influence and inspire those close to us. Through this spread of climate-conscious practices and advocacy, our individual actions become collective ones that can eventually effect widespread change.


Whether by inviting family, friends, or colleagues to a plant-rich meal or by becoming activists at climate nonprofits, we can forge the social norms and shared identities that lead to change. With easy-to-follow dos and don'ts, In This Together shows us a practical and hopeful way forward into our shared future.

Available March 2023. 


In This Together:

Connecting with Your Community to Combat the Climate Crisis

Methane is bad, yes. But what about hydrogen? The fossil fuel industry wants us to think hydrogen is the future, and while there might be some limited role for hydrogen in a clean energy economy, it is far from the panacea the oil and gas industry are pushing and has the potential to do more harm than good. What do climate activists need to know about these much-hyped gases? What is their proper role in our energy future? And where do we, as active climate citizens, need to focus our efforts?

Speakers: Dr. Robert Howarth is an expert on methane, and one of the most cited environmental scientists in the world. Bob will give us the science on methane and explain why it poses a serious threat to the planet. James Walsh, is Policy Director at Food & Water Watch, a leading environmental organization. Jim will give us the good, bad, and ugly of hydrogen and tell us what policies are needed to promote green hydrogen and scale back methane
