“What Can I Do? My Path from Climate Despair to Action”
By Jane Fonda, Penguin Press, NY 2020
This inspiring book illustrates the power of purposeful humans to accelerate beneficial social progress. Author, Jane Fonda is a living example with her lifelong political engagement in the big global issues of our time: the transition of all societies beyond fossil energy, patriarchal power politics, violence, and militarism. This book describes the global cultural and technological transition to cleaner, fairer, inclusive, knowledge-richer societies. We join Fonda’s call for the Green New Deal in the USA, Europe and 140 other countries where these shifts to 100% renewable energy are viable by 2030.
Author Fonda lays out in this book the scientific and technological means for this global transition. In “What Can I Do?” she personifies and illustrates all the inspiring demonstrations in Washington of her Fire Drill Fridays she led with her friends and allies. Jane Fonda is now internationally-recognized for her leadership as one of the honored speakers in the 75th-anniversary events of the United Nations. Must reading for all global citizens!
