Fossil Future
Why Global Human Flourishing Requires More Oil, Coal, and Natural Gas--Not Less
Alex Epstein - 2022-05-24
Goodreads Rating
This compelling book challenges conventional thinking about the future of energy. Delving into data and insights, the author presents a unique perspective on the benefits of fossil fuels for global human flourishing – including their ability to provide low-cost, reliable energy to millions of people around the world. By applying a "human flourishing framework" to the latest evidence, the author concludes that fossil fuels will continue to far outweigh their side effects for generations to come. This groundbreaking work will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about our environment, energy use, and climate.

Feminism for Women
The Real Route to Liberation
Julie Bindel - 2021-09-02
Goodreads Rating
Feminism for Women is a ground-breaking book exploring Julie Bindel’s definition of feminism - a quest for the liberation of women from patriarchy. Bindel deconstructs myths about feminism, evaluates its goals, and exposes the pervasiveness of misogyny. This book, with contributions from legends like Gloria Steinem, presents a clear-headed view of feminism, prioritizing issues like pornography, sexual violence, and prostitution. It’s a call to arms to reclaim feminism for every woman on the planet - only together can we resist and overcome invisible forces of misogyny.

You don’t have to be Female to read this! As a Male, I found this book I was sent, to review, both interesting & thought provoking. Maybe @MyNottingham you can get your staff to read this book after banning/excluding @bindelj from her talk - education is key! #FeminismForWomen      source

The World for Sale
Money, Power, and the Traders Who Barter the Earth's Resources
Javier Blas, Jack Farchy - 2020-07-09 (first published in 2021)
Goodreads Rating
The World for Sale takes readers inside the secretive and powerful world of commodity trading, where traders buy, sell, and hoard the earth's resources, no matter how corrupt or war-torn the source. With fascinating stories of their political power and influence, this eye-opening read is a guiding tour through the wildest frontiers of the global economy, and a revelatory guide to how capitalism really works.
