Late Victorian Holocausts: El Niño Famines and the Making of the Third World
Here is a running (unordered) list of my recommended readings related to climate, environment, economics, politics, and philosophy. Favorites are bolded. Reviews by me will me linked if they exist.
To be clear, this isn’t a list of things I completely agree with. Some may even contain many opinions I wholly disagree with. The point is I find them interesting and have learned something of value.
Most of these are freely accessible on the Internet unless noted otherwise. Feel free to contact me if you have any trouble finding them, or want to discuss!
