12 books on how climate change is transforming businesses and the global economy

For some businesses and entrepreneurs, climate change isn't just a threat. It's an opportunity.

New York Stock Exchange 

The significant transformations required to meet the challenges posed by climate change are, from another perspective, fabulous opportunities. Inventors, entrepreneurs, and business strategists recognized this fact many years ago. Their activities have since been chronicled and analyzed by reporters, researchers, and, in some cases, the entrepreneurs themselves.

For this month’s bookshelf on climate change and business, Yale Climate Connections has assembled two different lists. This first list covers books published in the last five years. The second list covers recent free reports on the same subject from international organizations, government agencies, and D.C.-based think tanks.

Comments 1 to 1:

  1. "Climate crisis more politically polarizing than abortion for US voters, study finds"

    So frustrating. Although Republicans rate the climate issue as very low priority compared to democrats, the article shows quite a number of Republicans want something done about it seemingly in contradiction, so perhaps the low priority ranking is just going along with the "approved tribal position" and their position on mitigation a better indicator of their real views. Although their real views are still rather lukewarm.

    The cooperation on a carbon tax is still a long way away from achieving anything. Some say dont be judgemental of the other side in politics, work with them, be nice...but this does not seem to be yielding results when its tried. The grim reality is that on the climate, abortion, and guns issue both sides cannot be right.
