What is Climate Nonfiction?

Climate nonfiction is a broad genre of writing that includes all works of nonfiction that focus primarily on the climate crisis. Some climate nonfiction books describe the causes and consequences of the climate crisis in great detail. Others examine potential and actual climate solutions.

Some works of climate nonfiction are journalistic or documentary in nature, striving to present information about the climate crisis in a relatively “academic” or “objective” manner. Others, such as creative climate nonfiction, use literary techniques to tell more personal and compelling stories about the climate crisis. All of it qualifies as climate nonfiction.

Please check out my Bookshop shop and Goodreads profile for lists of some of my favorite climate nonfiction titles. My reading lists on Bookshop are organized into categories that will help you narrow down what exact type of climate nonfiction (or fiction) you want to read.

Climate Change Bookshop

Where can you buy climate fiction?

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

My Climate Change Bookshop features a curated collection of climate change books. My catalog includes both climate nonfiction and climate fiction 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 fiction 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!

If you prefer to borrow rather than buy, they may also be available from your local library in print or ebook format. You’re welcome to use the reading lists in my Climate Change Bookshop as a starting point even if you don’t buy the books there. I’m trying to make a living as a bookseller, but I also just really want to help readers find and read good climate change books!

Proceeds from the Climate Change Bookshop

My Climate Change Bookshop is an affiliate store. This means that when you buy using this store, I may receive a small affiliate commission at no extra cost to you. This currently only applies to books you buy from Amazon, Kobo, Bookshop, and Smashwords.

I donate 10% of my proceeds from your purchases in my Climate Change Bookshop to climate justice groups. The rest is used to pay my website expenses and provide me with a bit of income from selling climate change books. I do this for the love of reading and climate justice, but affiliate income from book sales helps make it sustainable.
