What will the world look like in 2050 if we take action to get global warming under control? What will the world look like if we won't?

At this crucial point in time, In Our Hands is more relevant than ever. Packed with information, ideas, and resrouces, this book inspires us to move from concern to action. The choice is literally in our hands. By collaborating across generations we can build a more resilient and healthier world.
