Hothouse Earth: An Inhabitant’s Guide, by Bill McGuire (Hot Science/Icon Books, 2022)

An overview of climate change, its consequences, and a call for urgent meaningful action to be taken. A swift, accessible, though comprehensive account of the damage being done to the planet, and of the problems that this is already causing. The message is clear: the window for taking corrective action is closing fast. Recommended.

No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference, by Greta Thunberg (Penguin, 2019)

A collection of short speeches made in 2018 and 2019 by the teen climate change activist. The same ideas, repeated in different ways; a series of pleas for meaningful action against global warming to be prioritised over pointless rhetoric or ignoring the issues. Clear, straightforward and accessible.
