Review Copy from Laurence King


Authors Giannella and Mauruzzelli brought us We Are All Greta: Be Inspired to Save the World, a biography of climate activist Thunberg that is also a primer on climate change with suggestions for sustainable living, all presented in an engaging way, shining a ray of hope on what feels like an overwhelming situation. With Green Nation Revolution: Use Your Future to Change the World, Giannella and Mauruzzelli explore what happens next in the fight against climate change, something Thunberg, and many other youth activists, proved you don't have to be an adult to understand.

Acknowledging the extraordinary ability of teen Greta Thunberg to get the world talking about issues scientists and politicians have been trying to publicize for over thirty years, as well the inspirational figure she has been for many young climate activists, Green Nation Revolution: Use Your Future to Change the World begins with a chapter titled, "How Dare You?" Thunberg's efforts and actions over the last two years provide the backbone of the chapters that follow. The concept of a circular economy is followed by a chapter on new jobs for a Green Nation, then a superb chapter titled, "Be Prepared: Studying for a Brilliant Green Career" which lists study programs and green universities around the world to help young readers prepare for the future and the advance technology they could be developing and/or working with. Everything from sustainable investing and agriculture, to the water footprint of businesses, building with zero emissions and style without consequences are also covered.

Green Nation Revolution: Use Your Future to Change the World is the ideal book for anyone, young or old, seeking to educate themselves in an effort to make informed changes that will work toward sharing water and other resources fairly, producing what we need without polluting and shop responsibly.
