"12 Climate Books To Bring With You On Summer Vacation"

"From sports to thrillers to photography, these books make for quick and entertaining reads."

"While it can provide time to complete a short course of study (see Yale Climate Connections’ bookshelf for May), summer reading is usually defined by vacations. These are the sorts of books one reads on the way to a holiday destination or on a beach, pool deck, or balcony after one arrives. Summer books read quickly; they engross and entertain even when they have important lessons to impart about climate change.

Leading off our list of summer 2024 titles are two brisk reads by CNN’s chief climate correspondent Bill Weir and climate activist and investor Tom Steyer. The new book by activist and changemaker Osprey Orielle Lake places their works in perspective, stressing the importance of Indigenous knowledge and climate justice.

The next two titles focus on the nonhuman life with which we share the planet. Indeed, argues the first, the planet itself should be understood as a life form."
