She’s one of the world’s most famous actors, with a career spanning seven decades, but last year Jane Fonda decided to take a stand against something greatly impacting our real world – the climate crisis.
In autumn 2019, Jane, 82, moved to Washington DC to help launch the weekly Fire Drill Friday demonstrations, risking arrest to protest the government action on the climate crisis. In What Can I Do? Jane tells stories from a lifetime of political activism and includes interviews she recently conducted with leading climate scientists and activists.
Announcing her new book, Jane says, ‘I have a new book coming out on September 8th, called “What Can I Do? My Path From Climate Despair to Action,” published by HQ, HarperCollins in the UK and PenguinPress in the US. I love this book so much!
‘It recounts how last fall I had an epiphany about the state of our planet that sent me to Washington DC and changed my life. I didn’t think that could happen—at my age—but it did and I’m not looking back. Everything I learned and what you need to know about the climate crisis is here from the mouths of experts and the too often unheard voices at the frontlines of the crisis, with stories and ideas that will change the way you think. It changed me. And what’s more, it gives clear ideas to answer your question: What Can I Do?’
To pre-order your copy of What Can I Do? visit Jane's official website.
Jane adds, ‘This is the last possible moment in history when changing course can mean saving lives and species on an unimaginable scale. It’s too late for moderation.’
