Celebrating My Community
I’m privileged to be part of a community of inspiring people dedicated to saving our planet. Below are some of the successes and voices that inspire me and give me hope.
Water: A Biography
Brilliant first book by my friend and former colleague, Giulio Boccaletti. A comprehensive history of water management, it’s also the best explanation of antiquity and the development of human civilization I’ve ever read.
The Ministry for the Future
Part 4 of my Fall climate tour, Ministry for the Future is a fascinating thought experiment in how we ultimately solve the climate challenge. Terrifying and hopeful at the same time.
How to Avoid a Climate Disaster
Part 3 of my Fall climate tour. Bill Gates’ climate book is a simple and practical guide to the technology needed to solve climate change.
Steve Koonin’s controversial book on climate science is a sobering reminder of the importance of getting the science right.
The Uninhabitable Earth
Part 1 of my Fall climate tour, David Wallace-Wells book is a terrifying picture of just how bad the climate problem could get. While not the most likely scenario, the idea that this is even a possible future should be reason enough to move much faster on climate.
