For decades, the dominant narrative for environmental activism has cast crusading citizen heroes against profit-hungry corporate villains in an all-out war to save the earth. The war narrative has basis in fact. But it has triggered a political arms race that has dragged on for a half-century, enriching political strategists while driving the world toward ecological disaster.
In This Together is part introduction, part agenda, and part strategy to save the planet from combatants on both the left and the right. Crow and Shireman show how to break the gridlock, unite the parties, and drive radical collaboration to find solutions. Their plan brings together the best ideas of conservatives and progressives, and restores conservation as a bipartisan priority that can preserve our prosperity and help reclaim our divided democracy.
“Read this to be upset, confused, conflicted, excited and maybe even hopeful. Collaborating we can achieve amazing progress. Fighting we all lose.” —Joan Blades, Living Room Conversations on Energy and Climate; co-founder, MoveOn.org
“There’s no reason why economic and environmental interests need to be at war. Both Shireman and Crow have done a tremendous amount to show exactly why and how what’s good for the planet is also good for the economy.” —Eli Lehrer, President, R Street Institute
"A book you have to read during these times. The book really opened my eyes to many things that I wouldn't have really paid attention to if I didn't read this book. I would definitely recommend people to read this book." Amazon.com
"In This Together is a sobering yet necessary read in 2021. Not only is our political division tearing apart America's social fabric, it's also tearing apart our environment. This book addresses how the two issues are interlinked and what we can do about it. If you are serious about finding solutions instead of finger pointing, give this book a read." Amazon.com
