Climate Change is Racist is the first book for a popular audience that I’m aware of that deals specifically with climate change and race. It won’t stay that way for long, and I’ll list similar titles as they become available. I’m looking forward to Vanessa Nakate’s A Bigger Picture (Oct 21) and Consumed, by Aja Barber, for example (Sept 21).
In the meantime, here are some recommended reads on climate and race, from book length to feature length. Visit Earthbound Books for a full list of books that I drew on in Climate Change is Racist.
