Margaret Klein Salamon leads organizational strategy for The Climate Mobilization and Climate Mobilization Project. In this role, she has helped catalyze a burgeoning worldwide Climate Emergency Movement. Margaret earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Adelphi University and a BA in social anthropology from Harvard. Though she loved being a therapist, Margaret felt called to apply her psychological and anthropological knowledge to solving climate change. She is the author of Facing the Climate Emergency: How to Transform yourself with Climate Truth available from New Society Publishers now wherever books are sold.
In this episode, we talk with Margaret about her new book, averting climate disaster, what a World War 2 scale mobilization would look like, and why federal action is the only answer.
