This collection of essays from various women at the forefront of the climate movement is one of the more empowering and uplifting books about the climate crisis that I have read. It’s easy to feel hopeless and scared when learning about climate change and the limited amount of time we have to keep our planet inhabitable, but I walked away from every essay in this book with more knowledge about climate solutions and more hope about the future of this movement. The short essay-style of this book and variety of subjects covered makes it perfect for easily distracted readers who desire to learn more about the climate crisis and its solutions.

Don’t Even Think About It by George Marshall

Actually, it was the book that helped me realize my real place in the world and have an unvarnished look at my current attitude to the environment. The book also offers actionable tips on how to spread the ideas of environmentalism and conscious living amongst denialists of global warming and other human-triggered impacts on our planet. If you need a book that changes your mind, this one is a must-have.

Read this climate change book to find out stories from Haiti to Bangladesh, from those who hail from places under the most critical stress from the climate crisis. Tales of Two Planets includes essays, fiction, poems, and reportage from around the world to illustrate the dreadful inequalities that are further exacerbated by climate change, bringing further human context to your understanding of a complex crisis.

The Future by Al Gore, he looks at causes of the problems and examples of ways the issues are being fixed in various places. Exhausting in the amount of information there but worth it.

Confessions of a Radical Industrialist by Ray Anderson

This is super inspiring then a bit depressing, if Ray was able to do all the work he did with a long distance goal of 2020 why haven’t the other major industries caught up?

The Uninhabitable Earth by David Wallace-Wells

This product was recommended by Brack Nelson from Incrementors

This is not a novel about the science of warming; it is a book about what heating means to the way we live on this planet. Wallace-Wells writes in The Uninhabitable Earth, intuitive and alert. The Uninhabitable Earth transforms scientific predictions into lyrically given realities, with the author painting gloomy pictures of what life will be like at each degree of melting. He predicts climate displacement, food insecurity, geopolitical war, global afflicts, and pouring natural disasters, among other terrible realities. The doom Wallace-Wells predicts is shocking, ruthless, and entirely self-exposed. Wallace-Wells writes, “It is worse, much worse than you think.”

The Constitutional Question to Save the Planet by Franklin Kury

This product was recommended by Robert J. Oltmanns from OPR Group, LLC

The right to a healthy environment is a Constitutional right in three states, making it a fundamental protection under the law on par with freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Franklin Kury, a lawyer and former Pennsylvania state senator who wrote the Constitutional amendment in Pennsylvania, argues in his new book that President Biden’s climate change agenda must include a Constitutional amendment as the only way to ensure that a healthy environment becomes an enforceable public policy that will be guaranteed by the courts for years to come.
