    At age 16, Gregg Kleiner spent a year in the mountains of northern Thailand as an AFS exchange student. For a month of that year, he lived at a Buddhist monastery as a novice under the tutelage of an aged monk. He has worked as a dairy goat farmer, hotel concierge in Switzerland, freelance journalist, wildlife biologist, technical writer, visiting professor, and communications director. Following extended travel and stints living in Asia and Europe, he now resides a short walk from the confluence of the Willamette and Marys rivers in western Oregon in the United States. The seeds for his literary novel "Where River Turns to Sky" (HarperCollins) were planted during his time in Thailand, where elders are respected and revered for simply having lived so long. His two children, and his concern about the climate crisis, inspired him to write his first book for kids (and their adults!), which asks, what might happen if we could see CO2 in the atmosphere. "Please Don't Paint Our Planet Pink! A Story About Climate Change for Kids and their Adults" uses watercolor illustrations by Laurel Thompson, some humor, and a dash of climate science to inspire young and older minds alike to start seeing pink all around us, and then taking bold climate action.
