I read a lot of climate change, environment, and nature related writing these days. I don't think I've ever been more despondent than I am now as I'm working my way through David Wallace-Wells' book The Uninhabitable Earth. I don't exactly want to say I recommend it, because I don't want to ruin anyone's good day . . . but I also don't want to say to not read it, because as far as environmental writing goes, this book has an urgency and intensity that makes it important.
