Cowed: The Hidden Impact of 93 Million Cows on America’s Health, Economy, Politics, Culture, and Environment. By Denis Hayes. Cowed shows how raising and eating cattle has depleted America’s largest aquifer, created health problems, and drastically increased methane discharges (a very powerful greenhouse gas). Eating one pound of beef produces a greater carbon footprint than burning a gallon of gas. Cowed provides a glimpse into what we can do now to provide a better future for cows, humans, and the world we share. Overall, Cowed points to a future in which we eat less, but better, beef.

Deep Water: As Polar Ice Melts, Scientists Debate How High Our Oceans Will Rise. By Dan Grossman. Rivers of defrosting ice are flowing off polar glaciers and surging into the sea. As the flow becomes a deluge, the livelihoods – and very lives – of tens of millions of people living near coastlines will soon be in jeopardy.

Energy Policy in the Greenhouse: From Warming Fate to Warming Limit. By Jonathan Koomey. The globe is warming, and while no one knows what will happen as a result, it is clear that slowing the process is a necessary goal. This study brings sophisticated computer modeling to bear on ways of minimizing the risks. Fossil carbon emissions, other trace gases and releases from other sources are all taken into account, and the authors demonstrate the global need to reduce cumulative releases. They also demonstrate the need to return to a rate of forest carbon storage equal to that of the mid-1980s. As Kindle | More… | Jonathan Koomey EcoSpeakers Info >>

Engaging Voices: Tales of Morality and Meaning in an Age of Global Warming. By Roger S. Gottlieb. Our ecological dilemmas provoke powerful emotions and deeply contested views. How can we live together, or even talk together, when we cannot listen to people who think differently? Gottlieb explores this question in a collection of distinct but related philosophical short stories. Fictional characters wrestle with the value of nature, the roles of science and religion in environmentalism, and political choices facing activists. Readers will examine personal barriers to listening to those “on the other side.” As Kindle | More… | Roger S. Gottlieb EcoSpeakers Info >>

Facing Catastrophe: Environmental Action for a Post-Katrina World. By Rob Verchick. As Hurricane Katrina vividly revealed, disaster policy in the United States is broken and needs reform. What can we learn from past disasters – storms, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, landslides, and wildfires – about preparing for and responding to future catastrophes? How can these lessons be applied in a future threatened by climate change? In this bold contribution to environmental law, Robert Verchick argues for a new perspective on disaster law that is based on the principles of environmental protection.

Hell and High Water: The Global Warming Solution. By Joe Romm. American energy policy is driving the whole world down a path toward global catastrophe. According to Joseph Romm, we have ten years, at most, to start making sharp cuts to our greenhouse gas emissions, or we will face disastrous consequences. The good news, he writes, is that there is something we can do—but only if the leadership of the U.S. government acts immediately and asserts its influence on the rest of the world. Hell and High Water is a searing critique of American environmental and energy policy, and a passionate call to action. More… | Joe Romm EcoSpeakers Info >>

The Hype About Hydrogen: Fact and Fiction in the Race to Save the Climate. By Joe Romm. Explains why hydrogen isn't the quick technological fix it's cracked up to be, and why cheering for fuel cells to sweep the market is not a viable strategy for combating climate change. Buildings and factories powered by fuel cells may indeed become common, but when it comes to transportation, hydrogen is unlikely to have a significant impact before 2050. Neither government policy nor business investment should be based on the belief that hydrogen cars will have meaningful commercial success in the near or medium term.

Lives Per Gallon: The True Cost of Our Oil Addiction. By Terry Tamminen. A hard look at the health, environmental, and national security costs hidden in every barrel of oil. While the petroleum industry is raking in huge profits, it is studiously avoiding measures that would lessen the hazards of its products. Using the successful lawsuits by state governments against big tobacco as a model, the author sets forth a bold strategy to hold oil and auto companies accountable and force industry reform. He also offers a blueprint for developing alternative energy sources based on California's real world experiences. As Kindle | More… | Terry Tamminen EcoSpeakers Info >>

On Arctic Ground. By Debbie S. Miller. With more than 150 photos by outstanding photographers, this photo-essay book is the first to describe the wildlife, wilderness, paleontology and cultural history of the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. The Reserve represents the largest block of public land remaining in America, a region larger than the state of Maine. It is adjacent to the Arctic Ocean – a region experiencing rapid changes because of global warming. This is a timely book about a controversial subject: Should we be developing fossil fuels in sensitive areas most impacted by global warming? More… | Debbie S. Miller EcoSpeakers Info >>

Straight Up: America's Fiercest Climate Blogger Takes on the Status Quo Media, Politicians, and Clean Energy Solutions. By Joe Romm. Climate change is far more urgent than people understand, Romm says, and traditional media and politicians are missing the story. Despite the dearth of reporting, polls show that two in five Americans think the press is actually exaggerating the threat of climate change. That gives Big Oil, and others with a vested interest in the status quo, a huge opportunity to mislead the public. Romm cuts through the misinformation and presents the truth about humanity's most dire threat. As Kindle | More… | Joe Romm EcoSpeakers Info >>

Transformational Resilience: How Trauma-Informed Responses to Climate Disruption Can Catalyze Positive Change. By Bob Doppelt. Explains how natural human reactions to the traumas of climate disruption can damage the emotional and social wellbeing of individuals, organizations, communities and societies. Doppelt describes methods that may avoid such harmful reactions and instead use the traumas to find new meaning, direction, and hope. Failure to help people deal constructively with the harmful impacts of climate disruption could also delay or even completely block efforts to reduce those impacts.
