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. Look here for Book Reviews by our members of some of the books below.

  1. The Uninhabitable Earth – Life after Warming, by David Wallace-Wells, Deputy Editor at The New Yorker magazine, Tim Duggan Books, 2019

    This book lit a fire under my A.., and got me started on my journey to become “Green Gramps on the Hill” in Ottawa.
