Food and Climate Change without the hot air by S L Bridle

This product was recommended by Alex Mastin from HomeGrounds

My business is based around food and drink, and as such we need to understand how much food has an impact on our climate and the world as we know it. By just changing your diet as a single person, you could be reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 25 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions come from food, so by reducing the food with the problems and sticking to others, we could help save the plant, and still have tasty treats when we need them. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in how we eat can affect the planet, even in a small way.’

A Life on Our Planet by Sir David Attenborough

This product was recommended by Harriet Chan from CocoFinder

This is an excellent book for individuals concerned about the planet’s ecological future as the writer, an eminent traveler, and naturalist delivers a combination of manifesto and memoir. David recognizes that the world is at a tipping point, and he is refreshingly optimistic to note that humans are so good at solving problems.

Storming the Wall by Todd Miller

This product was recommended by Harriet Chan from CocoFinder

The book is a galvanizing forecast of global warming’s endgame and discusses the frequency of global warming acceleration, droughts, floods, and superstorms. Todd travels the world and reports from the flashpoints of climate clashes. He chronicles a growing system of militarized divisions between the environmentally secure or exposed and the rich or poor.

One hundred styles and systems are described here—some are well known; some you may have never heard of.

The 6th Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert (Henry Holt)

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and New York Times bestseller Elizabeth Kolbert researches in half a dozen disciplines, geologists who study deep ocean cores, botanists who follow the tree line as it climbs up the Andes, marine biologists who dive off the Great Barrier Reef. She elucidates how we are seeing extinction at an alarming rate in each scientific discipline. The sixth extinction askes is to look at how humans are currently impacting our planet, it is a true wake-up call.

The Water Will Come by Jeff Goodwell

This product was recommended by Alisa Shargorodsky from ECHO Systems

This book is sure to scare the boots off of you. When we think about water levels rising we rarely think about the impact on developed cities that are ill equipt for these changes. This book illustrates what that looks like for places like Miami Beach, New York City, and other populated areas but also the displacement that will occur if we continue to bury our heads.

Parable Of The Sower by Octavia Butler

This product was recommended by Alisa Shargorodsky from ECHO Systems

One of our favorite books of all time. Octavia Butler is one of the most prolific and talented writers of our time. In this book, she weaves a story of a strong-willed black woman living in LA who is afflicted with hyper empathy, feeling all that surrounds her. The story takes place during a time where water is scarce and survival becomes more and more of a challenge. It’s dystopian at best but also leaves the reader inspired by the harrowing strength and resilience of humanity.

Merchants of Doubt by Erik M. Conway and Naomi Oreskes

This product was recommended by Ahmed Elnaggar from Set The Record Player

The book outlines how a handful of pseudo-scientists had a disproportionately louder voice when it came to the most controversial debates of our generation. From the impact of fossil fuels and combustion engines to the health effects of tobacco smoking to the impact of fossil fuels, the book dissects the social, political and economic conditions that led to the emergence of the situation we face today. This book is essential in understanding the reality of how we got to where we are here; an understanding which is essential in guiding any solution to the climate crisis.

No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference by Greta Thunberg

This product was recommended by Michelle Cross from OnBuy

From the mind of the young Swedish activist, Greta Thunberg, comes this inspiring book detailing the climate crisis and the unavoidable plight of the people it already affects and will affect in the years to come. As suggested by the title, Thunberg’s impassioned words have sparked a global movement that’s resonated with generations of people and supported a message that assures no person or act is too insignificant to make a difference. Filled with new, history-making speeches from Vienna, Paris, and New York, this edition has been expanded and illustrated to convince even the most reluctant reader to eagerly consume every page.
