Where can you buy climate change books?

Most bookshops don’t have a climate change section. They might have the books you’re looking for, but they’re not easy to find without a dedicated climate change section.

My Climate Change Bookshop features a curated collection of climate change books. My catalog includes both climate fiction and climate nonfiction categories. Browse over a hundred titles, choose the one that’s right for you, and order it from your favorite online bookseller.

Each book’s page includes a button that take you to where you can get the book online. A few of these climate change books are free ebooks. Others are available for purchase in ebook or print format. If you prefer to borrow rather than buy, they may also be available from your local library.

You can also find most of the same titles at my shop on Bookshop.org. When you buy from Bookshop, part of the proceeds go to local independent bookstores, at no extra cost to you. Bookshop offers the convenience of shopping online plus the peace of mind of knowing that you’re supporting local independent bookstores!
