Eaarth: Making Life on a New Planet is a great book on climate change from activist Bill McKibben. Intentionally misspelled, Eaarth portrays a planet that has been changed to the point that is unrecognizable from its original natural state. If you’re in need of a reality check about climate change, this book will remind you that the hope for sustaining a habitable planet requires fundamental change, and it must come from all of us. It will provide actionable strategies to help us all learn to help curb the negative effects of climate change that we’re seeing more and more of. Even as it was written in 2010, it is still quite applicable to today, and I highly recommend it as a feature.

This book presents a solution to climate change through a deep exploration into innovative construction materials and techniques for green building design. The author is a structural engineer with 35 years’ experience and founder of the Ecological Building Network. The book debunks the myth that ‘zero energy buildings’ are enough to fight climate change and presents building material solutions that pull carbon out of the atmosphere and lock it up in roofs, walls and foundations of new buildings. The result is an eye-opening exploration into what the future of buildings can look like with materials we have available today. It will inspire homeowners, future home-builders, contractors, architects and students on how to not only slow-down climate change but heal the damage already caused.

All We Can Save illuminates the expertise and insights of dozens of diverse women leading on climate in the United States—scientists, journalists, farmers, lawyers, teachers, activists, innovators, wonks, and designers, across generations, geographies, and race—and aims to advance a more representative, nuanced, and solution-oriented public conversation on the climate crisis. These women offer a spectrum of ideas and insights for how we can rapidly, radically reshape society. “We need to have a whole cultural shift, where it becomes our culture to take care of the Earth, and in order to make this shift, we need storytelling about how the Earth takes care of us and how we can take care of her.”

OK, it’s Science Fiction – but WOW! Using science to portray a frighteningly plausible future history, this book connects what IS happening today, to what WILL BE tomorrow if we don’t act fast. More prophecy than fiction, it makes real all the scientific predictions and dire warnings that the climate change community is trying to flag up to the world at large. If you weren’t a believer before, you will be after you’ve read this book.

The book is important as it lays out for the general public the ways our food consumption – from the agricultural systems we have set in place to the way we operate in our kitchens – has a huge impact on the environment and is an often unspoken about catalyst of climate change.
