“The Tantrum That Saved The World” is the world’s first carbon-neutral children’s book about climate change. Part storybook, part science book, and part action plan, it is designed to first spark children’s interest with an engaging and empathetic illustrated story, then explain to them the science and impacts of climate change in language they will understand, and finally to empower them to convert the strong feelings they have about the topic into positive action by following the World Saving Action Plan. This book is designed to start conversations about climate change in households by providing a resource that all members of the family can turn to. The aim is not only to demystify the topic and eliminate the sense of hopelessness and disempowerment that often prevents people from taking action, but also to act as a conduit for spreading the conversation and accompanying climate action into schools, workplaces, and the broader community. The book is a combination of the talents of two career communicators – Megan Herbert, writer/illustrator, and Michael E. Mann, award-winning climate scientist and science communicator – who created this project in response to a need to communicate about this topic to their own young children.
