Publisher Description:
"Generation Dread is a vital and deeply compelling read."--Adam McKay, award-winning writer, director, and producer (Vice, Succession, Don't Look Up)

"Read this courageous book."--Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything

"Wray shows finally that meaningful living is possible even in the face of that which threatens to extinguish life itself."--Dr. Gabor Maté, author of When the Body Says No

When we're faced with record-breaking temperatures, worsening wildfires, more severe storms, and other devastating effects of climate change, feelings of anxiety and despair are normal. In Generation Dread, Britt Wray reminds us that our distress is, at its heart, a sign of our connection to and love for the world. The first step toward becoming a steward of the planet is connecting with our climate emotions--seeing them as a sign of our humanity and empathy and learning how to live with them. Britt Wray, a scientist and expert on the psychological impacts of the climate crisis, brilliantly weaves together research, insight from climate-aware therapists, and personal experience, to illuminate how we can connect with others, find purpose, and thrive in a warming, climate-unsettled world.
