The Uninhabitable Earth | Life After Warming
David Wallace-Wells

It is worse, much worse, than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible—food shortages, refugee emergencies, climate wars and economic devastation.

The Sixth Extinction | An Unnatural History
Elizabeth Kolbert

Over the last half a billion years, there have been five mass extinctions of life on earth. Scientists around the world are currently monitoring the sixth, predicted to be the most devastating extinction event since the asteroid impact that wiped out the dinosaurs. Elizabeth Kolbert combines brilliant field reporting, the history of ideas and the work of geologists, botanists and marine biologists to tell the gripping stories of a dozen species.

Our Final Warning | Six Degrees of Climate Emergency
Mark Lynas

We are living in a climate emergency. But how much worse could it get? Will civilisation collapse? Are we already past the point of no return? What kind of future can our children expect? Rigorously cataloguing the very latest climate science, Mark Lynas explores the course we have set for Earth over the next century and beyond. Degree by terrifying degree, he charts the likely consequences of global heating and the ensuing climate catastrophe.

Under a White Sky | The Nature of the Future
Elizabeth Kolbert

Kolbert describes the subjects of Under a White Sky as “people trying to solve problems created by people trying to solve problems”; she turns her lens to human interventions in nature, like the storied redirection of the Chicago River, and to the pressing need for further intervention to correct our folly. Traveling everywhere from the Great Lakes to the Great Barrier Reef, she chronicles her encounters with scientists, who are pioneering cutting-edge technologies to turn carbon emissions to stone and shoot diamonds in the stratosphere. Heralded by everyone from Barack Obama to Al Gore, Kolbert’s urgent, deeply researched text asks if our ingenuity can outrun our hubris.

Losing Earth | A Recent History
Nathaniel Rich

Spanning the pivotal decade between 1979 and 1989, Losing Earth chronicles the rise of political awareness about global warming, along with the myriad failures of policymakers to address the growing climate emergency. Instead, as Rich reveals in painstaking historical detail, policymakers sided with profit-thirsty corporations, who mounted a massive campaign of disinformation and denialism that continues to shape our political life today. Though the subject of his book is the lost decade in the fight against climate crisis, Rich ultimately concludes on a hopeful note, arguing that we still have time to save our planet. Read Losing Earth’s stunning story of human greed and human folly to determine if you share his optimism.

The Future We Choose
Christiana Figueres, Tom Rivett-Carnac

The Future We Choose is a passionate call to arms from former UN Executive Secretary for Climate Change, Christiana Figueres, and Tom Rivett-Carnac, senior political strategist for the Paris Agreement. We are still able to stave off the worst and manage the long-term effects of climate change, but we have to act now. We know what we need to do, and we have everything we need to do it. Practical, optimistic and empowering, The Future We Choose is a book for every generation, for all of us who feel powerless in the face of the climate crisis.


Led by ex-Secretary General of the UNFCCC, Christiana Figueres, this Podcast covers the latest news from science, business, finance, politics, and culture every Thursday with a can-do attitude. This podcast is for everyone looking to expand their understanding of the climate crisis and get inspired to take action.

Climate change is confusing. This award-winning MIT podcast breaks down the science, technologies, and policies behind climate change, how it’s impacting us, and what our society can do about it. Each quick episode gives you the what, why, and how on climate change — from real scientists — to help us all make informed decisions for our future.


Give up your climate guilt. Sharpen your curiosity. This show is for the climate-curious people who know climate change is a problem but are trying to figure out how to tackle it. The hosts tell stories about the levers of power that have created the problem — and the tools we have to fix it. 

“How screwed are we?” That’s the first line in the trailer for How to Save a Planet. Hosted by journalist Alex Blumberg and scientist and policy nerd Ayana Elizabeth Johnson, the podcast aims to show viewers what society needs to do to deal with climate change.
