Paperback and eBook
When climate solutions researcher and advocate John Moorhead-Guinea loses his eldest son Alex in a climbing accident made more likely by human-induced climate change, he is devastated. His book project on scaling up regenerative climate solutions is paused and transforms to first offer these meditations on love and grief for his son and the polluted planet we inhabit and can bring back to equilibrium.
Composed as a letter to Alex, this deeply personal book traces both universal themes of human relationships to nature, juxtaposed with the intimacy felt by a father for his beloved child. Drawing inspiration from Alex’s life and love of the mountains, Moorhead-Guinea’s tender manifesto reframes the argument for urgent behavior change to one of love, for family, yourself and the planet.
