Climate Related Books and Podcast Recommendations from Youth Climate Activists
TED published these recommendations back in April. If you’re looking to pick up a new book or start a new podcast give one of these recommendations a try!
The health of our planet depends on all of us, and perhaps no group today feels this more acutely than the world’s young since they will be left to grapple with some of the most devastating consequences of a warming world. According to some projections, for example, a child born in 2020 will experience a two- to seven-fold increase in extreme weather events compared to those born in 1960.
So it’s no surprise that young people have been on the forefront of climate movements demanding bold, global action.
