"Our Choice: A Plan to Solve the Climate Crisis" by Al Gore

If you’re in need of a pick-me-up after the lackluster results of the climate debate this year, look no further than Al Gore’s Our Choice, which exhaustively outlines the many diverse solutions already available to solve the climate crisis — if only we can muster the collective will. And, for an inside look into how we got into this mess in the first place, check out NASA scientist James Hansen’s first book, Storms of My Grandchildren: The Truth About the Coming Climate Catastrophe and Our Last Chance to Save Humanity.
