Gaslit Nation

Mar 27, 2024

Gaslit Nation is recharging our batteries for the big election ahead so we're re-running a popular episode this week: Andrea's interview with Dr. Katharine Wilkinson, the co-author of All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis. Exclusively for our Patreon community we're publishing an all new bonus show this Saturday answering questions from our supporters at the Democracy Defender level and higher. Thank you to everyone who supports the show -- we could not make Gaslit Nation without you!
With so much ominous news about the climate crisis heralding the man-made apocalypse, we need leaders like the women highlighted in the must-read book All We Can Save. Co-edited by Dr. Katharine Wilkinson, climate author and teacher, and Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, marine biologist and founder of the non-profit think tank Urban Ocean Lab who promoted a Blue New Deal to save our oceans, this soul-hugging anthology provides a breathing space to wrap our hearts and our minds around solutions for healing our planet and ourselves. We cannot recommend this book enough. Dr. Wilkinson joins us for an unforgettable discussion of the climate crisis: where are we now and what must we do about it?
From the biography on her website: "Dr. Katharine Wilkinson co-founded and leads The All We Can Save Project with Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, in support of women leading on climate. She also co-hosts the podcast A Matter of Degrees, telling stories for the climate curious with Dr. Leah Stokes. Previously, Dr. Wilkinson was the principal writer and editor-in-chief at Project Drawdown, where she led the organization’s work to share climate solutions with audiences around the world. She speaks widely, including at National Geographic and the United Nations. Her TED Talk on climate and gender equality has more than 1.9 million views. A homegrown Atlantan, Dr. Wilkinson holds a doctorate in geography and environment from Oxford, where she was a Rhodes Scholar, and a BA in religion from Sewanee. Formative months spent in the Southern Appalachians, as a student at The Outdoor Academy, shaped her path. Time magazine featured Dr. Wilkinson as one of 15 'women who will save the world' and Apolitical named her one of the '100 most influential people in gender policy.' You can find her on Twitter: @DrKWilkinson.
