Hello, fellow book lovers, Jeremiah here.

For this month, I’ve found a small collection of books that explore environmental issues. We’ve got some hope, some humor, and a lot of good ideas about how to understand the world that ours is becoming.

So, log in, put the books on hold, and we’ll get them ready for you.

Happy reading!


The rescue effect: the key to saving life on earth / Michael Mehta Webster.

“The Rescue Effect shows us the regenerative systems that help nature survive in the face of stressors like climate change, and how we can use this natural resiliency to help reverse it”– from the publisher.

I want a better catastrophe : navigating the climate crisis with grief, hope, and gallows humor : an existential manual for tragic optimists, can-do pessimists, and compassionate doomers / Andrew Boyd.

“Reeling from a crisis of hope, lifelong activist Andrew Boyd seeks out today’s leading climate thinkers, from collapse-psychologist Jamey Hecht to Indigenous botanist Robin Wall Kimmerer. “If it’s the end of the world, now what?” he asks, as he steers us through our climate angst in search of a “better catastrophe””– from the publisher.

The climate book / created by Greta Thunberg.

“Gathering together the wisdom of over 100 experts, the world’s leading climate activist arms us with the knowledge we need to combat climate disaster, showing there is hope, but only if we listen to the science before it’s too late” — from the publisher.

The great displacement : climate change and the next American migration / Jake Bittle.

“A human-centered narrative with national scope, this first book to report on climate migration in the U.S. tells the stories of those already experiencing life on the move, while detailing just how radically climate change with transform our lives,” — from the publisher.

The big fix: 7 practical steps to save our planet / Hal Harvey and Justin Gillis, with Mark Silberg and Amanda Myers.

“Sharing first-hand accounts of people already making needed changes, an energy policy advisor and longtime New York Times reporter offer everyday citizens a guide to the seven essential changes our communities must enact to bring our greenhouse gas emissions down to zero,” — from the publisher.
