Kate Troll, Alaskan author, adventurer, and conservation activist is an engaging speaker. She brings her depth, wit, and storytelling to her speaking, just as in her book: The Great Unconformity: Reflections on Hope in an Imperiled World.
To read The Great Unconformity is to spend time with Kate Troll, a wonky, funny, bossy, passionate, widely read and accomplished outdoors woman, who is delightful and inspiring company. If you only read one book on climate change, and what you can do about it, make it this one. If you’ve read them all, it deserves a place in your library— better yet, don’t keep it on a shelf, pass it on and join Kate’s quest to save the world she loves. Heather Lende, author of NY Times bestseller If You Lived Here, I’d Know Your Name: The News from Small-town Alaska
We can’t afford to wallow in the issue of having a climate denier in the White House. We must push on harder. We all need reasons to be hopeful. That’s why my messages are so important and so appreciated. I ground the issues of climate in the hard facts of this most pressing of challenges; then I deliver hope on the wings of humanity and creativity.
