The best books on global warming

For the Guardian, Felicity Lawrence, John Vidal and Sarah Crown came up with "a stimulating and manageable reading list from the profusion of green books on the shelves."

Their choices for non-fiction:
Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
Development as Freedom by Amartya Sen
Soil Not Oil by Vandana Sheeva
The Revenge of Gaia by James Lovelock
The Selected Works of Arne Naess
So Shall We Reap by Colin Tudge
Feeding People is Easy by Colin Tudge
Collapse by Jared Diamond
Six Degrees by Mark Lynas
Heat by George Monbiot
Read about the fiction on the list.

Collapse appears on Andrew Ellson's critic's chart of books on "cash crashes."
