We’d like to introduce you to Grove’s Field Guide to Climate Change, a new book written by Bob Grove. This field guide is the result of years of climate workshops and webinars – summarizing the research behind all of these programs into a simple self-help book. If you’ve attended any of Grove’s presentations and wished you could take the slideshow home with you, you’ll find all that material here along with much more.
If you enjoy hard science, lots of numbers, and chemical formulas clearly explained, you’ll appreciate the book’s lengthy Introduction to climate change – both the section that sets politics aside and just looks at the science, and the section the goes over it again WITH politics and explains why climate change is such a political football. You’ll probably also appreciate the extensive endnotes the let you dig deeper into all the book’s source materials.
If chemistry and climatology aren’t your thing, just skip the intro and start with chapter one. From that point forward, the book takes a light tone as it talks about all the ways you can save money while being healthier and safer as climate changes the way we live and work. The book is filled with asides that provide interesting trivia, and some necessary warnings. Each chapter ends with a list of talking points you can use to continue the book’s conversation with your friends and family, and a list of action items that boil the chapter’s contents down into simple actions.
An easy, quick read (if you skip the Intro) that you’ll come back to over and over again. Grove’s FIELD GUIDE to Climate Change is available in paperback and eBook on Amazon, Apple, Google and Barnes & Noble.
Bob Grove is President of the Climate Council and Executive Producer of the Climate Hour.
