 Books

I recommend Seth Klein's book, A Good War, 2020, because the reviews/summaries on the website sound excellent, Laura Stewart recommends it, and her Broadway United Church climate change study group is buying and providing all MLAs in the Saskatchewan legislature with a copy. Laura is chair of our KAIROS Regina climate change working group and member of the UCC Climate Advisory Circle. It is Canadian. Klein spoke at a recent Regina Zoom event. 

I think Bill Gates book, How to Avoid a Climate Disaster also is worth reading. See Google for comments in The Guardian.  

The Regina Public Library has many (hundreds? of books on climate change I'd like to read, several recent, although I was unable to spot ones for children regarding climate change. Old ones on protecting the environment like Dr. Seuss The Lorax are still good.  

 

Digital resources

I depend on (daily) email newsletters and websites for most of my information, mainly because climate change is such a rapidly changing subject, not in the science and causes but in the impacts and especially in what is being done and not done regarding responses or solutions.

CBC: to subscribe see the link here and choose from an array of daily letters such as CBC Saskatchewan, CBC News Political Headlines. Samples of recent CBC items:

COVID-19 offers lessons on the challenge of tackling climate change

NPR: Angelina subscribes to NPR (National Public Radio) from the US. Sample: Four charts that show what's at stake at the COP26.

The Guardian: Peter Prebble believes this is the best source. Sample here.
