Happy Earth Day! Our friends at Austin Texas Science Writers have recommended a great list of reads to help us celebrate our planet. Though we come from different backgrounds and have an array of reading interests, we all value living on a more sustainable planet. These reads offer an opportunity to learn more about our impact and challenge our assumptions about the world. There’s something for everyone: ecotourism, conservation, food and agriculture, climate change, consumerism, and political social accountability.
