My selection of five great reads about the contested meanings of climate change has been posted at Shepherd’s, a new platform seeking to re-create something of the joy and serendipity of browsing the shelves of a real bookstore.
As well as profiling my own Why We Disagree About Climate Change, by selections are: Raul Lejano and Shardul Nero. “The Power of Narrative: Climate Skepticism and the Deconstruction of Science” (Oxford University Press, 2020); Candis Callison. “How Climate Change Comes to Matter: The Communal Life of Facts. (Duke University Press, 2014); Paul Smith and Nicholas Howe. ”Climate Change as Social Drama: Global Warming in the Public Sphere”. Cambridge University Press, 2015); Greg Garrard, Axel Goodbody, George Handley and Stephanie Posthumus. “Climate Change Scepticism: A Transnational Ecocritical Analysis” (Bloomsbury Academic, 2019); and Alex Evans “The Myth Gap: What Happens When Evidence and Arguments Aren’t Enough? (Eden Books, 2017).
