Books and Journals

Global Climate Change: A Primer, by Orrin H. Pilkey & Keith C. Pilkey
The Pilkeys do an excellent job of separating out the facts from the opinions, and introducing the science to an intelligent and concerned, but not specialized, readership. The problem won't go away, will only become more critical, and this book deserves our immediate attention.
Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis, by Al Gore
Al Gore has been masterful at presenting the problems around climate change in ways that ordinary (non-scientist) folks can grasp and get involved with. Here he presents solid ideas for the transition to an energy reality that confronts those problems.
Dead Heat, by Tom Athanasiou & Paul Baer
Explains the science behind global warming and outlines the political reasons that governments have not acted to reverse climate change. The book argues that both environmental and economic factors must be considered to create a solution that puts public good before corporate profit.
The Heat Is On, by Ross Gelbspan
A very readable introduction to the science and politics of global warming.
Published by the Earth Island Institute, the journal reports on a wide range of environmental activist organizations around the world.
