How to Prepare for Climate Change: A Practical Guide to Surviving the Chaos (Jan 2021, Simon & Schuster) is by David Pogue, a science and technology writer best known for his work on CBS News Sunday Morning.

Pogue cuts straight to the chase when it comes to climate change. “The world is getting hotter, natural systems are going haywire, and you should begin to prepare,”

He lays out the harsh reality of record heat and droughts and details innovations in agriculture. He also offers practical advice on talking to those who reject climate science and on finding the right insurance policy.  Pogue describes the impact of climate change in various locations, climate mitigation efforts by individuals and businesses, and practical topics such as the business and insurance aspects of climate resilience, personal disaster preparedness, and political and social participation in climate action.


Van Carter is a retired broadcast newsman. "I was never a war correspondent, yet we're now in a war and I feel like I'm reporting from the front lines." Since 2008, he has published the Only Green list.  To see previous and upcoming episodes, go here.
