How to avoid a climate disaster

How to Avoid a Climate Disaster: The Solutions We Have and the Breakthroughs We Need
by Bill Gates

From the book description

Bill Gates has spent a decade investigating the causes and effects of climate change. With the help of experts in the fields of physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, political science, and finance, he has focused on what must be done in order to stop the planet’s slide to certain environmental disaster. In this book, he not only explains why we need to work toward net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases, but also details what we need to do to achieve this profoundly important goal.

The hidden life of trees

The Hidden Life of Trees: What They Feel, How They Communicate
by Peter Wohlleben

Are trees social beings? In The Hidden Life of Trees forester and author Peter Wohlleben convincingly makes the case that, yes, the forest is a social network. He draws on groundbreaking scientific discoveries to describe how trees are like human families: tree parents live together with their children, communicate with them, support them as they grow, share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, and even warn each other of impending dangers. Wohlleben also shares his deep love of woods and forests, explaining the amazing processes of life, death, and regeneration he has observed in his woodland.

After learning about the complex life of trees, a walk in the woods will never be the same again.


Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World
by Bill Nye 

Just as World War II called an earlier generation to greatness, so the climate crisis is calling today’s rising youth to action: to create a better future.

Bill Nye applies his message of technological optimism to one of the most serious challenges facing our species: climate change. With a scientist’s rigorous understanding of how things are and an engineer’s vision of how things could be, he completely reframes the issue of today’s environmental crisis and views it not as the end of progress but as an opportunity for a tremendous new beginning.

Our only home

Our Only Home: A Climate Appeal to the World 
by Dalai Lama

Saving the climate is our common duty. With each passing day, climate change is causing Pacific islands to disappear into the sea, accelerating the extinction of species at alarming proportions and aggravating a water shortage that has affected the entire world. In short, climate change can no longer be denied—it threatens our existence on earth.

In this new book, the Dalai Lama, one of the most influential figures of our time, calls on political decision makers to finally fight against deadlock and ignorance on this issue and to stand up for a different, more climate-friendly world and for the younger generation to assert their right to regain their future.
