#2 Losing Earth by Nathaniel Rich

Climate change is firmly entrenched in zeitgeist today, but concerns over how human consumption of fossil fuels would impact the planet have been around for more than 40 years. Nathaniel Rich chronicles how scientists – including those employed by Exxon – sounded the alarm about climate change with frightening degrees of accuracy only to be thwarted by well-funded opponents using tactics straight out of the tobacco playbook.

The arguments against taking action are the same today as they were in 1988, while the reasons for doing something drastic to fight climate change have become only more apparent. This book felt like a gut punch, and inspired me to be a more conscious consumer and to make climate activism a part of my daily life.
