Resources about climate change

Over the Christmas holiday of 2020, I tried to bring myself up to speed on climate change. What I have learned made me very concerned. It was much worse than I had thought. In fact, one reason that I decided to go back to work in China is to avoid flying every year to visit my family.

This page lists resources which helped me to realize how serious the situation is. Hopefully it would be useful for you.

Books

If you only have time to read one book about climate change, then you should read Our Final Warning: Six Degrees of Climate Emergency by Mark Lynas. It describes in chilling details the different scenarios given different levels of warming and why our action today is crucial for the continuation of humanity.

Documentary films

My new favourite documentary film on climate change is Greta Thunberg: A Year to Change the World. It is hard not be moved by Greta's courage to tell the truth while the whole world is self-deluding.
