The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming
Why this book?
David Wallace-Wells’s book is the only non-fiction on my list - perfect for you if you’re finding yourself trying to get a more factual grip on exactly what will happen to the world as climate change continues unabated. But rather than presenting you with a list of statistics, Wallace-Wells explores different scenarios with a frankness that makes reading his book feel like talking to your most informed friend, someone who knows what questions you might have and is eager to answer them. Early sections of this book are especially hard-hitting; when I read it I had to take breaks every twenty pages or so because it made me so anxious, but coming back to the text felt grounding, sobering, and entirely worthwhile.
