Rebecca Solnit on Why It’s Not Too Late
Writer, historian, and activist Rebecca Solnit has been examining the concept of hope and the unpredictability of change through her work for more than 20 years. Her 2014 essay “Men Explain Things to Me” is credited with inspiring the term “mansplaining,” and she was named the “Voice of the Resistance'' by The New York Times in 2017. The 2023 anthology she co-edited, It’s Not Too Late, serves as a guidebook for changing the climate narrative from despair to possibility.
Join Climate One’s Ariana Brocious for a live conversation with one of the leading thinkers on feminism, popular power, insurrection, and environmental and social change as we discuss why new climate narratives are important, how change happens, and how she finds hope for the future in the midst of the escalating climate crisis.
