Climate change is currently a hot topic (pun intended), and with so much information coming out on a daily basis – some of it controversial – we never know who to believe and end up confused about what the warming earth truly means. As a result, we gathered four audiobooks and one paper book about climate change to read.

These five books will not only educate you about climate change and other related topics, but will also teach you how you, as an individual, can make a difference.

Even with our hectic schedules, Audible made it possible for us to learn. It is up to us to take action and educate ourselves about our surroundings.

4 best audiobooks about climate change

1. The Uninhabitable Earth, By David Wallace-Wells

The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming

The Uninhabitable Earth: Life After Warming

  • Audible Audiobook
  • David Wallace-Wells (Author) - David Wallace-Wells (Narrator)
  • English (Publication Language)

$24.50

The Uninhabitable Earth is a (not so) hypothetical book on what the planet might be like if it warmed up by 2, 3, or 4 degrees.

It demonstrates how rising temperatures have societal, political, and cultural effects in addition to environmental ones. This book is both a warning and a call to action, as it reveals the genuine danger that awaits us if we do not act quickly.

2. We Are The Weather: Saving The Planet Begins At Breakfast

We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast

We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast

  • Audible Audiobook
  • Jonathan Safran Foer (Author) - Jonathan Safran Foer (Narrator)
  • English (Publication Language)

$28.11

With this powerful collection of pieces, Jonathan Safran Foer once again points the finger at all of us. We Are The Weather claims that no one is doing enough to combat climate change, claiming that "we don't care" from climate doubters to climate scientists.

This isn't just a case of blaming things on Facebook; it also comes with a solution: individual action. Everything changes a lot if we all change a little!

3. inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don’t Know You Have

Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don't...

Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don't...

  • Audible Audiobook
  • Tatiana Schlossberg (Author) - Tatiana Schlossberg (Narrator)
  • English (Publication Language)

$25.94

Please be prepared before reading this book since it will change the way you look at all of your purchases. Inconspicuous Consumption explores the story of how everything affects the environment, including food, fashion, fuel, and technology.

Tatiana Schlossberg does not wish for you to feel remorseful. She wants you to grow as a person and learn new things. It's difficult not to after reading this book.

4. No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference

No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference

No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference

  • Audible Audiobook
  • Greta Thunberg (Author) - Greta Thunberg (Narrator)
  • English (Publication Language)

$9.54

You've undoubtedly heard of Greta Thunberg by now, but it's never too late to give her another introduction. This Swedish adolescent began skipping school on Fridays to protest the state of the environment in front of her local authorities.

#SchoolStrike4Climate, also known as #FridaysForFuture, became a worldwide movement. Millions of people, young and old, from all around the world went on strike to demand that their governments change as well.

Greta began giving motivational and activating talks at well-known events and conferences as the movement grew in popularity.

They are collected in this inspiring story, which demonstrates that we are never too small (in age, size, or potential effect) to make a difference. It all starts with a single step, then the ripple effect grows.

5. How Bad Are Bananas?: The Carbon Footprint Of Everything

How Bad Are Bananas?: The carbon footprint of everything by Mike...

How Bad Are Bananas?: The carbon footprint of everything by Mike...

  • Profile Books (13 May 2010) (Publisher)

$45.48

How Bad are Bananas? is similar to the last book in that it teaches you about the carbon impact of everything. And this is not an exaggeration! This book covers everything from everyday behaviours like texting to personal decisions like having a child to major events like the World Cup and volcanic eruptions.

Mike Berners-Lee has the potential to change your mind about certain previously thought-to-be ecologically friendly items. This is a must-read!

This title is not currently available on Audible. You can, however, check it up in a paperback book.
