About the Author

Dr. Joelle Gergis is an award-winning climate scientist and writer at the Australian National University. She served as a lead author for the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report and is the author of Sunburnt Country: The History and Future of Climate Change in Australia.


"Scientists aren't cyborgs--studying the climate crisis comes with a deep emotional burden. Joelle Gergis has shouldered that burden and as a result has some useful ideas to share with the rest of us as we try to cope with the reality of what we've already done. It's a key part of trying to limit the damage--physical and spiritual--going forward."--Bill McKibben, author "The End of Nature" "In Humanity's Moment, Joelle Gergis, a leading climate scientist and gifted author, manages to unpack the science behind the climate crisis in a way that is authoritative, gripping, and very personal. Read her engaging, first-hand account of the latest UN climate report to have both hope and inspiration as we tackle the greatest challenge we have faced as a species."--Michael Mann, Presidential Distinguished Professor, University of Pennsylvania, and author of "The New Climate War" "This book by a leading scientist is powerful, urgent, passionate, and clear, an explanation of the science of climate change and the kind of changes with which we need to meet it, changes in our energy policy, politics, and very imagining of the natural world and humanity's place in it. With its stubborn and well-grounded hopefulness, Humanity's Moment is a tool for engagement, whether you're new to the issue or could use some bolstering in your commitment."--Rebecca Solnit, author of "Orwell's Roses" and "Hope in the Dark"
