Economía rosquilla
7 maneras de pensar la economía del siglo XXI
Kate Raworth - 2017-07-25
Calificación de Goodreads
La economía no funciona. Ha sido incapaz de predecir, y no digamos de impedir, las crisis financieras que han sacudido los cimientos de nuestras sociedades. Sus obsoletas teorías han permitido la existencia de un mundo en el que persiste la pobreza extrema mientras la riqueza de los superricos aumenta año tras año. Y sus puntos ciegos han desembocado en políticas que están degradando el mundo viviente en una escala que amenaza por entero a nuestro futuro. ¿Es posible arreglarla? En Economía dónut, la académica de Oxford Kate Raworth identifica siete aspectos cruciales en los que la economía convencional nos ha llevado por el mal camino, y establece una hoja de ruta para conducir a la humanidad a un punto ideal donde puedan satisfacerse las necesidades de todos con los medios del planeta. En este trayecto, la autora revela cómo la obsesión por el equilibrio ha dejado a los economistas indefensos a la hora de afrontar el auge y caída de la economía del mundo real y, al mismo tiempo, crea un modelo económico de vanguardia apropiado para el siglo xxi; un modelo en el que una brújula en forma de dónut señala el camino hacia el progreso humano. Ambiciosa, radical y rigurosamente argumentada, Economía dónut promete resituar y redibujar el futuro de la economía para una nueva generación.

The Global Carbon Cycle book cover
The Global Carbon Cycle
David Archer - 2010-11-28
Calificación de Goodreads
Discover the essential geochemical driver of our climate system with The Global Carbon Cycle. Written by one of the world's leading climate experts, David Archer brings clarity to this complex subject in simple terms. Archer examines the carbon cycle on three different timescales and explores how the cycle interacts with the climate system. Learn how feedbacks in the carbon cycle stabilize Earth's climate and how on a human timescale, the carbon cycle has been dampening climate change. With a glossary of terms, suggestions for further reading, and explanations of equations, Archer also looks at open questions about the global carbon cycle.

@Ending_Duopoly @bernard_seeger If you want to go in-depth, I'd recommend starting with a book on the carbon cycle like this one      fuente
Climate Cover-Up book cover
Climate Cover-Up
The Crusade to Deny Global Warming
James Hoggan, Richard Littlemore - 2009-09-29
Calificación de Goodreads
Discover the shocking truth behind the climate change denial movement in Climate Cover-Up. This eye-opening book delves into the pollsters, think tanks, and funding behind the elaborate hoax. Despite the warnings from leading scientists and advocates, many Americans continue to turn a blind eye to the severe shifts in our climate. Climate Cover-Up is a must-read wake-up call for anyone who wants to know the truth about the ongoing cover-up.
Katharine Hayhoe
@HighSierra6100 Yes! After I read this book, I seriously considered quitting climate because it showed me how far behind we were. Instead, I decided to learn everything I could about the social science to beat them at their game — but with love rather than fear.      fuente

Reproductive Rights and Wrongs
The Global Politics of Population Control
Betsy Hartmann - 2016-12-13 (publicado por primera vez en 1987)
Calificación de Goodreads
This feminist classic challenges the myth of overpopulation and uncovers the roots of poverty, environmental degradation, and gender inequalities using vivid case studies. It explores how population control programs were promoted by powerful governments and international agencies, mainly targeting poor women with coercion often a matter of course. The book also tells the story of how international women's health activists fought to reform population control and promote sexual and reproductive health and rights. As declining birth rates are on the rise, this book helps readers understand how contemporary developments are rooted in the longer history and politics of population control. A must-read for students, activists, researchers, and policymakers.
Katharine Hayhoe
@finninaama @jmkorhonen That is incorrect. The 50% poorest produce 7% of global emissions. Please update your understanding with this post & video below, and I strongly recommend this book by Betsy Hartmann as well. Truth matters. Thank you!      fuente
Jesus and John Wayne book cover
Jesus and John Wayne
How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation
Kristin Kobes Du Mez - 2020-06-23
Calificación de Goodreads
Explore the relationship between white evangelicalism and Donald Trump in Jesus and John Wayne. Historian Kristin Kobes Du Mez reveals how culture and popular media have shaped the beliefs of millions of evangelical Americans, replacing Jesus of the Gospels with a mythical warrior idol of rugged masculinity and Christian nationalism. From Ronald Reagan to John Wayne, these muscular heroes have instilled patriarchal, authoritarian, and aggressive values within white evangelicalism that have become deeply rooted within the community. This thought-provoking book challenges the assumption that evangelicals supported Trump purely for pragmatic reasons, instead showing how his values align with their own, and how it will have an enduring impact on the nation long after he's gone.

So enjoyed catching @kkdumez in person speaking about her book, “Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation”. Highly recommended if you want to understand the influence of patriarchy and militarism on religion in 🇺🇸      fuente

An expert account of the mechanisms behind human-induced global warming, this book provides an illuminating look at the breakthroughs in climate modeling that have led to our current understanding of the issue. Joining pioneer Syukuro Manabe, atmospheric scientist Anthony Broccoli provides a clear and authoritative explanation of how increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide has affected the planet's temperature and precipitation, as well as rare insights into the development of these key discoveries. Beyond Global Warming is a must-read for anyone interested in the science behind this pressing matter.
Katharine Hayhoe
I close this thread by recommending this book by Syukuro Manabe and Anthony Broccoli: a definitive account of how we have come to understand the fundamental processes behind global warming. Which, as you now know, is Nobel-winning work. 🥂      fuente

Cómo sobrevivir a la crisis climática
Christiana Figueres - 2020-02-25
Calificación de Goodreads
« Ce livre est l'un des plus inspirants que j'ai jamais lus. Il pose un regard lucide sur les réalités terrifiantes du changement climatique, mais conclut que l'humanité peut encore faire face à cette menace. De plus, le livre présente le défi existentiel du changement climatique comme une opportunité unique pour construire un monde plus juste et pour nous rendre meilleurs. Plus important encore, il propose une approche résolument pratique et suggère 10 actions concrètes que chacun de nous peut faire afin de créer un avenir possible pour tous les habitants de la planète Terre. J'espère que nous prendrons tous à coeur ce message. » Yuval Harari , auteur de Sapiens, Homo Deus et 21 Leçons pour le XXIe siècle . « L'accord de Paris aura fait date pour l'humanité. Dans ce livre important qui arrive à point nommé, deux des principaux initiateurs de cet accord nous montrent pourquoi et comment nous devons mettre en oeuvre ses engagements. J'espère qu'il sera largement lu et suivi d'actes. Jane Goodall , auteure de Ma vie avec les chimpanzés . Après avoir joué un rôle clé dans l'accord de Paris, Christiana Figueres et Tom Rivett-Carnac ont cofondé Global Optimism, une organisation dédiée au changement environnemental. Ils collaborent avec les plus grands militants écologistes comme Al Gore, Jane Goodall ou Greta Thunberg.

@SamuelPeeps9 I also highly recommend this book by Christiana Figueres who is of course the force behind the Paris Agreement. Their powerful conclusion is, "we were only ever as doomed as we believed ourselves to be."      fuente
