THE FRAGILE EARTH Writings from The New Yorker on Climate Change

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kaleo Griffith, Gabra Zackman, Cat Gould

Contemporary Culture • 18.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Kaleo Griffith, Gabra Zackman, and Cat Gould narrate this timely collection of climate-change nonfiction from THE NEW YORKER magazine with engagement, clarity, and an admirable mix of insistence and calm. Written by many of the magazine's most well-known authors, including Elizabeth Kolbert, Bill McKibben, Burkhard Bilger, Kathryn Schulz, and Ian Frazer, the pieces focus on "how we got here, where we are, and what we can do now." The information they relate is serially eye-opening, terrifying, and riveting. Kolbert's afterword doesn't comfort but will make you get out of your car, turn down the heat and air-conditioning, and eat fewer animals. Preferably by yesterday. That's why the narrators' articulate, unruffled readings are essential; they keep us listening to news that must no longer be avoided. A.C.S.
