Environmental educator and National Geographic expert M. Jackson has spent years researching glaciers and climate change. In While Glaciers Slept, she effectively draws parallels, both literal and metaphorical, between the threat of climate change and the declining health and mortality of her parents. She poses a stark question: If losing one’s parents is so devastating, how can we survive the destruction of the planet that sustains us? Despite grim predictions for the future, Jackson encourages hope in the form of solar, wind, and geothermal solutions and educates people about how to slow the effects of climate change. Weaving this global crisis together with her own personal story of loss and recovery, she creates a palpable link between humanity and the earth.
