Booklist published its first core collection on climate change in 2006, and all of the books listed there are still urgently important because the reality of global warming is still being denied in spite of ever-rising planetary temperatures and the ever-worsening impacts of climate change. Once again, we offer a list of exceptional books explicating the state of the climate, the biosphere, and humankind, books calling for action and offering paths forward. We continue to hope that clearly presented facts and persuasive discussions will help guide us toward solutions.
