The steady stream of books over the last decade addressing climate change seems to have increased to a flood in the last year to 18 months. It appears to be one of the new hot topics. Authors are tackling many topics: from the politics of climate change denial, through practical solutions to make your own household or society more sustainable, to messages of hope and inspiration in the face of potentially catastrophic environmental change. We even have one of the major science fiction writers of this era weighing in with a vision for the future.
What have you read recently that you found informative, sobering, or inspiring? What are you currently reading? What do you have on your bookshelf or bedside table waiting for you to find time to start? If you aren’t reading as much as you want to or think you should, what are the impediments besides not enough hours in the day?
This discussion will be an opportunity to share and perhaps get some ideas for next books. You might come away with a gift idea for that uncle who is the climate change denier. Maybe we will even feel inspired to start a climate change reading group.
Tune in on Zoom Tuesday evening December 14 at 7 PM. If you can’t attend but would like to get a recording, please register and we will eventually get you the recording or at least the Chat list of recommended reading.
The Philadelphia chapter of PA IPL is very active. Chapter volunteers plan workshops, services, and work in coalition with many other groups bringing faith voices to climate justice and clean energy transition efforts, and they bring climate justice voices to faith work. Their monthly meetings are on the second Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM, and are open to everyone. Particular meetings may focus either on planning or on a particular program.
