Climate Book Club
Join in reading books about economic and environmental impacts of climate change and the potential solutions for solving the climate crisis!
The goal of Climate Book Club is to build literacy around the environment and climate change to help you continue the conversation with your community. No expertise required. We will be reading and learning together!
Climate book club is open to the public! You do not need to be a member of CCL to attend.
**Special Guest: Michael Mendez on May 26, 2021 **
For our May 2021 meeting, we will be joined by the author of “Climate Change from the Streets,” Michael Mendez!
Michael Méndez is assistant professor of environmental planning and policy at the University of California, Irvine. He previously served in California as a senior consultant, lobbyist, and gubernatorial appointee during the passage of the state’s internationally acclaimed climate change legislation.
His new award-winning book “Climate Change from the Streets,” published through Yale University Press (2020), is an urgent and timely story of the contentious politics of incorporating environmental justice into global climate change policy. The book was the winner of the Harold and Margaret Sprout Award, sponsored by the International Studies Association (ISA).
