I am so happy to share this curation of environment reference materials and articles from 2020, which I’ve been adding to my weekend reads. This is everything I’m reading on the multiple topics around the issue of our impact on earth and what it means. I will update it every week and start a new one in 2021. Of course, this is not everything that matters, but what I am reading and watching.
I know many people who are not ready to face the crisis, and of course, we have even more denying there’s an issue in the first place. I understand why this is happening, because the institutions that matter – government, business and media – are great at keeping us confused.
All I ask is, take some time every week to read something on the issue, but please, never rely on one source for your information. You can remain loyal to your existing media platform, but we all need to stretch outside to get other views. Wouldn’t we prefer the truth? Well we need to do the work to find it.
So please, read through some or all, or just scan the headlines – it tells a story in itself. Also please share any information or research you find compelling. Always happy to help pass the message on.
