Don’t Just Vote

Don't_Just_Vote,_Get_Active!Earlier this year, I said that I would only write one post about the 2016 U.S. election cycle. Ultimately, I decided to split my commentary into two posts. The first post, which you’re reading now, is called Don’t Just Vote. The second post, which I invite you to read next, is called Don’t Vote For Evil.

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 It was published in 2008, so some of the science it discusses is becoming slightly outdated.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.

Book Review: Loosed Upon the World: The Saga Anthology of Climate Fiction

As an avid reader of climate fiction (cli-fi), I was very much looking forward to the release of Loosed Upon the World: The Saga Anthology of Climate Fiction. I’m pleased to report that this anthology definitely met and exceeded my expectations.
