For November 2020, we are recommending The Story of More: How We Got to Climate Change and Where to Go from Here by Hope Jahren.
Hope explains how human behavior and actions have contributed to climate change. Covering the history, technology and science behind a host of key greenhouse emission emitters like electric power, large-scale agriculture, waste, this book will get you to think about how the everyday stuff that fills our lives takes a toll on the planet. Better yet, you can find out what we can do to make a difference. We love this book, because it talks about systems issues but reminds us of how each of us is a part of the solution.
As always, we recommend you purchase from either a responsible online retailer like Bookshop.org or from your local bookshop (bonus point if it's BIPOC-owned).
