New Book by Jenny Price

Stop Saving the Planet!: An Environmentalist Manifesto


This new book by RCC alumna Jenny Price provides an engaging and upfront look at the pitfalls of contemporary US environmentalism. Jenny worked on the book during her stay at the RCC. Available to pre-order with Norton, the work has already received highly positive reviews and significant interest as a valuable teaching resource.

“We've been 'saving the planet' for decades... & environmental crises just get worse. All this Tesla driving & LEED building & carbon trading seems to accomplish little to nothing — all while low-income communities continue to suffer the worst consequences. Why aren't we cleaning up the toxic messes & rolling back climate change? And why do so many Americans hate environmentalists? Jenny Price says, enough already! — with this short, fun, fierce manifesto for an environmentalism that is hugely more effective, a whole lot fairer, & infinitely less righteous. She challenges you, Exxon, & the EPA alike to think and act completely anew — & to start right now — to ensure a truly habitable future.”
