18 New Environmental Books

This week's investigative reporting, analysis and environmental news.
The Revelator

No. 18, March 8, 2018

Hello again, Revelator readers,

This month will see the publication of 18 great new environmental books, covering everything from sea otters to climate change, and from radical resistance to Rachel Carson and other pioneering women environmentalists. You can find the whole list (and maybe the next book that you want to read) in our latest "Revelator Reads" column.

Of course, there's also plenty of great stuff to read on The Revelator, like Daniel Grossman's powerful article about how indigenous people in Panama lost their history and culture when their ancestral land was flooded by a hydroelectric dam — a dam purportedly built to fight climate change.

Speaking of climate change, the Our Children's Trust lawsuit keeps moving forward, with 21 kids suing the government for their constitutional rights to life, liberty and property in the face of global warming. With this and the gun-control Never Again movement both gaining steam, is it the new normal for kids to take on the government?

Finally this week, we have a cool wildlife story for you. New research finds that jaguars and cellphones don't mix — and that could help us conserve them and dozens of other species.

In case you missed it:

If March's new environmental books aren't enough, here are 17 more from last month, covering bees, mountain gorillas, sea-level rise and a whole lot more.

And don't miss the first part of "A Border Betrayed," our investigation into environmental health problems along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Coming up:

Come back to The Revelator tomorrow for a look at how then-candidate Donald Trump and his golf courses refused to comply with environmental regulations.

We have a ton of other great stuff in the works for you in the days and weeks ahead. Look for links in next week's newsletter, or follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest headlines as they happen. And while you're on the social networking platform of your choice, we hope you'll share our stories with your friends.

Feel free to forward this newsletter, too — every new reader makes a difference.

That's it for this week. As always, thanks for reading.
