Book Review: Six Degrees by Mark Lynas

Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet by Mark Lynas is one of the most important books I’ve ever read. It was published in 2008, so some of the science it discusses is becoming slightly outdated. Even so, it’s still the most comprehensive and compelling overview of global warming (both the science and its human consequences) that I’ve read to date.

Book Review: The Warming by Lorin R. Robinson

I have mixed feelings about The Warming: Speculative Fiction about the Human Impact of the Climate Crisis. If I were rating this book based on the fascinating ideas it explores related to the climate crisis, I would give it five stars. However, if I were rating it based on the plot and characters of the main story arc, I would give it at best three stars. On the whole, as a reader who is specifically interested in thought-provoking cli-fi (climate fiction), I suppose I’ll split the difference and give it four out of five stars.

Struggle For Climate Justice

People from around the world recently gathered at a climate summit in Paris as part of a global effort to discuss and implement serious solutions to the global climate crisis. Unfortunately, most media outlets paid very little attention to that summit. Instead, they focused all of their attention on the not-so-serious solutions being discussed at the COP 21 climate summit.
