Writers share their new visions for American politics, fresh strategies for action on climate change, and guidance on recognizing online disinformation.
There are staggering quantities of great books available, very few of which are fiction. This is a curated list of the best books for adults, from Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring(1962) which set the stage for understanding the impact humans were having on the planet, Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth (2006) which made it abundantly clear, to Elizabeth Kolbert’s The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History(2014), and Paul Hawken’s Drawdown (2017) — all bestsellers from the time they were published.
But, here we are in 2019 and Amazon still doesn’t have a category called climate change and neither does Barnes and Noble.
We have starred some titles with which we have personal history and others which have come highly recommended. Some are general like Joe Romm’s Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know, and some highly specific like The Soil Will Save Us by Kristin Ohlson or Naomi Klein’s highly political This Changes Everything.
Let us know what you think.
