If you are interested in buying any of the books below, the links will take you through to them.
“A powerful, thought provoking, troubling yet at times hopeful focus on our new found ability to not just manged but also outperform evolution. His topics go beyond just climate change, and its familiar co-conspirators, species extinction, and toxic pollution and into the complex worlds of nanotechnology, synthetic biology, de-extinction, and climate engineering. It’s both well-written and accessible so would definitely recommend.”
“All his books are remarkable, a mix of history, geography, geology, literature and much more. This in particular is a real treat, where he travels the tracks, holloways, drovers roads, sea paths among other ancient networks to discover lost worlds and shared stories in the UK, Spain and Palestine. A perfect journey for those of us who can’t go anywhere at the moment.”
“McKibben has been described by VICE magazine as the Michael Jordan of climate change activism. He has been in the field for several decades. In fact, thirty years ago he alerted us to the dangers of climate change in his 1989, groundbreaking book The End of Nature. His 2019-published Falter book presents a sobering argument that we are close to a tipping point, not just through the continued damage to our environment but through the impact of new technologies like artificial intelligence.”
“It was lengthy to get through, but it was worth the effort. The academic-text-like book features essays by some of the world’s most provocative thinkers on the key issues shaping our century, from renewable energy and urban agriculture to social justice and community resilience. This informative collection takes a hard-nosed look at the interconnected threats of our global sustainability quandary and presents some of the most promising responses.”
“Described as a New York Times bestseller, this is a book that addresses the climate crisis at its very roots. Like Post Carbon Reader, it features a number of sustainability professionals that identify what they believe to be the 80 most effective actions that can jointly reduce emissions and sequester atmospheric carbon in soils and vegetation.
The diverse initiatives described in the book include advances in energy storage, wider adoption of composting, the creation of more walkable cities, the cultivation of perennial crops for bioenergy, and cement made from greener component.”
