The Carbon Diaries 2015 describes a near-future of cataclysmic climate change experienced by a 16-year-old girl and how she and her family and neighbors must radically reduce their every-day energy sources to comply with carbon rationing in London. This book paints a plausible picture of events that may well be coming soon, leavened with humor, humanity, and hope. Our workshop will explore creative ways to use immediacy and humor to pull readers out of indifference into active learning. This books blend well researched science, social commentary and the perspectives of teens who really do want to save the world.
