As we all face more time at home under the lockdown, there is a new opportunity to catch up with some reading.
Over the last few months, several friends have asked me for recommendations on books about sustainability, climate change and environmental justice. Some environmental news outlets have also been publishing reading lists, so I thought I would combine the two and share the top 10 hits.
- The Uninhabitable Earth, David Wallace-Wells
- Creating Climate Wealth: Unlocking the Impact Economy, Jigar Shah
- Don’t Even Think About It: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Ignore Climate Change, George Marshall
- This Changes Everything, Naomi Klein
- Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming, Paul Hawken
- Making Good: Finding Meaning, Money, and Community in a Changing World, Billy Parish and Dev Patel
- The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis, Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac
- Designing Regenerative Cultures, Daniel Christian Wahl
- Storming the Gates of Paradise, Rebecca Solnit
- Climate Justice: A Man-Made Problem with a Feminist Solution, Mary Robinson
Each of this books has a different purpose. Some are educational, some are focused on your potential career in the space, some are technical, and some are focused on human psychology.
