I have been a lifelong fan of the English Astronomer and Researcher, Sir Patrick Moore. I was a keen amateur astronomer during my college years, and as such, I was delighted to receive this book as a gift. He examines the role the media have played in creating fear by spreading fake stories about climate change which he claims are not true. Although he was one of the founding members of Greenpeace, he left the organization as he believed they were driven by the desire to profit rather than environmental concerns. Sir Patrick doesn’t deny that climate change is real. He does, however, challenge what he claims are scaremongering stories that can be debunked by science and which largely have gone unchallenged. I have read numerous books on climate change, and I have considered it essential to read multiple schools of thought. I recommend this title for those wanting to read alternative ideas on this controversial topic.

I think if you are coming up with a list of the best books on Climate Change, you gotta include this as it is a collection of some of the most well-researched, provocative, sometimes controversial, long-form essays that have appeared in the New Yorker magazine. One notable piece is William McKibben’s 1989 piece The End of Nature, which a lot of people at the time considered too speculative. Other notable writers featured are Elizabeth Kolbert and Kathryn Schulz.

The book manages to address serious topics with the love and compassion that we so desperately need and actually leaves the reader feeling hopeful, which seems like a rarity these days. The book illuminates the expertise and insights of dozens of diverse women leading on climate. These women aim to advance a more representative, nuanced, and solution-oriented public conversation on the climate crisis.

This book takes a different approach from simply explaining what climate change is. You can learn from so many different points of view which are the core defense mechanisms our brains use when someone is refusing to believe in climate change, despite the evidence. I think this will be great for someone who is compromised with having debates or simply wants to amp up their arguments, understanding the position of negationists from their core beliefs. The author made the effort of interviewing scientists, entrepreneurs, politicians, etc, not just people who agreed with him, which ends up in a great exploration of the human mind and the way we understand our planet.

Environmental conservation is an equal responsibility of every human. George Saves the Rainforest is an informative yet fascinating environmental book promulgating the message of environmental conservation. The book highlights the major issue of deforestation while also presenting the effects it has on the forests’ inhabitants. The story revolves around the orangutan, namely George, who is furious to know that the rainforest is getting destroyed. He is encouraged by his fellow inhabitants and begins the journey of saving the rainforest. The animals at the Wildlife Centre support him in his fight against humans and machines.
