Reader recommendation: Eaarth

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


Eaarth by Bill McKibben is compelling but scary reading. His thesis is that Earth has now become Eaarth, not the same planet on which our parents grew up – the era of cheap oil and unlimited growth is over. He suggests ways of decentralizing our economy to lessen the impact of climate change which is now irreversible.
