My Sustainability and Climate Research Lineup for Q2 2022

I’m riding the high of having just finished up my first-ever sustainability reading project. So, this lineup for my next one might be insanely ambitious and a bad idea.

But am I going to do it anyway? Of course!

This time, I’ve picked some books and websites as well as the usual UN/government report-tomes.

  1. The SEC’s proposed climate disclosure rule (March 2022)
  2. New IPCC report AR6, from three working groups – 1, 2, and 3 (2021-2022). Especially prioritizing Working Group 3, which focuses on Mitigation.
  3. October 2021 report from the International Energy Agency (IEA) about Curtailing Methane Emissions from Fossil Fuel Operations.
  4. UNEP Six Sector Solution
  5. FTC 2012 Green Guide
  6. Inconspicuous Consumption by Tatiana Schlossberg
  7. Speed and Scale by John Doerr
  8. Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer
  9. Web Survey (of useful websites for climate and sustainability data)

The first two texts above are recent news and developments in the climate space that I want to keep up with.

The next two are continuations of themes that came out of the last reading project, namely, methane mitigation, and what each sector should do about climate change.

Number 5 above has to do with the rules against greenwashing (that is, making false environmental claims when marketing) – a topic I’ve been curious about, and meaning to write about, for a while.

The next three are books that I’m hoping will help me form a big picture understanding of climate strategy. The reviews I’ve read of them piqued my interest.

Lastly, there are a few websites that keep coming up as sources in articles about climate change, and I want to do a quick survey of what they are and when they might be useful in my own writing.
