Non-fiction Books on My TBR-list for Earth Day 2022

Today is Earth Day! It’s an international yearly event to make people aware of ecological problems. The goal is to make people come in action. Read more about Earth Day on this website.

I post about Earth Day every year. Here you can find all my posts. I already wrote several times about books in which nature or the environment plays a role. But all those books were fiction. This time I decided to make a small list with non-fiction books about the climate I want to read. All of them are written by people that inspire me. On my TBR-list are:

No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference by Greta Thunberg
It’s amazing what Greta does! I admire her courage to stand up for the climate. At her age I certainly didn’t have the determination and the guts to go on strike or talk to world leaders. This book is a collection of Greta’s climate action speeches. I hope it will inspire me.

All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson & Katharine K. Wilkinson
I first heard about Ayana Elizabeth Jonhson in the podcast Ologies. In the episode Oceanology she tells about the beauty of the ocean and talks about how the ocean’s health is getting worse. It made me again realize how important it is that we have to do something about climate change. Later I found out that Ayana Elizabeth Jonhson edited a book with poems and essays about the climate crisis. This book with a diversity of contributors seems a great read!

The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times by Jane Goodall & Douglas Carlton Abrams
Jane Goodall is an anthropologist famous for the research she did on chimpanzees. She is an outspoken advocate for animal rights and the environment. Jane Goodall is an inspiring woman, and I really want to read one of her books. The Book of Hope sounds like something we all need. It’s about how we can stay hopeful when everything seems hopeless.
