Climate reading

Call me a nerd, but every year I put together a Christmas book list for relatives to shop off off. This year, the titles include several books about climate change and sustainability.

From the New York Times top seller list, my top choice is “SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes, and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance.” When I first heard that Steven Levitt & company were coming out with a follow-up to “Freakonomics,” I got super excited. And then I started reading about all the controversy surrounding his comments about global warming and got even more intrigued. You can read about how Levitt denies scientific evidence here.

The other two books I’ve got on my list are “Clean Energy Common Sense: An American Call to Action on Global Climate Change” by Frances Beinecke and the much recommended best seller “Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis” by Al Gore.
