The Boston Globe has two climate-related books on their list of the year’s most-expected books:
Turning to nonfiction, the year will bring a couple of books on the worrisome topic of global warming – The Great Warming: Climate Change and the Rise and Fall of Civilizations (March), by Brian Fagan, and Eric Roston‘s The Carbon Age: How Life’s Core Element Has Become Civilization’s Greatest Threat (June).
The second book is by a former Time magazine reporter who is also a once (and hopefully future) ClimateProgress blogger. I provided comments on a couple of chapters — and I think it is safe to say this book comes at the climate issue from an original angle and is very informative.
- Are China’s Carbon Emissions China’s?
- Carbon emissions race past all predictions
- An unlikely carbon pioneer
- The Executive Summary of All Executive Summaries
- Introducing Eric Roston who corrects Tim Flannery about Bjorn Lomborg
