Recommended Reading Material

There is a great deal of emerging information from scientists, investigative journalists, authors, political lobbyists and other interested parties on the topic of climate change. The sheer volume of resources can make the information overwhelming. Much of it is on the Web, and you can find that at our Suggested Web Pages, but many of us still prefer printed material that we can snuggle up with by the fire.

Here is a list of recommended reading from our members. If you have suggestions to add to this list please enter a Comment below and we’ll check it out.
