Storytelling is a vital skill to have when talking about climate change. In this episode, podcast host, Peterson Toscano, introduces you to novelist, Aaron Thier, a master storyteller. Through his new climate change-themed book, Mr. Eternity, Aaron Thier takes readers on a 1,000-year odyssey. The main character calls himself Daniel Defoe. We never learn his real name. Old Dan can’t seem to die. Five different narrators in five different periods from 1500 to 2500 bump into this traveler. The book is brilliant, hilarious, deeply moving, weird. It is essential reading for climate advocates. Learn why Aaron wrote the book and the challenges novelists face when telling climate stories. Aaron also reads extended excerpts from the book.

We exist to create the political will for climate solutions by enabling individual breakthroughs in the exercise of personal and political power.
