Goodreads Rating
Talk of global warming is nearly inescapable these days — but there are some who believe the concept of climate change is an elaborate hoax.

@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.      source

@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."      source

Everybody can be a thinking person when it comes to climate change, and this book is a perfect roadmap.  Start a web search for “climate change” and the first three suggestions are “facts,” “news,” and “hoax.” The Thinking Person's Guide to Climate Change is rooted in the first, up to date on the second, and anything but the last.

Putting a number on how much stronger, more damaging, bigger or more frequent climate change made an event is something climate scientists call "attribution." It's at the cutting edge of our research today, and this fantastic book by @FrediOtto explains:      source

Scientists as Prophets
A Rhetorical Genealogy
Lynda Walsh - 2013-07-15
Goodreads Rating
Why did an atheist like Carl Sagan talk so much about God? Why does NASA climatologist James Hansen plead with us in his recent book not to waste "Our Last Chance to Save Humanity"? Because science advisors are our new prophets, Lynda Walsh argues in Scientists as Prophets: A Rhetorical Genealogy . She does not claim, as some scholars have, that th...
