The Yale Climate Connections (YCC) article recommended professor Mike Gunter’s Climate Travels: How Ecotourism Changes Mindsets and Motivates Action in a summer reading list of fiction and nonfiction books all relating to nature and climate. An initiative of the Yale Center for Environmental Communication (YCEC), YCC is a nonpartisan, multimedia service providing daily programming and web-based reporting on the issue of climate change and how it affects our lives.

In his book Climate Travels, Gunter takes readers around the United States to showcase the many faces of the climate crisis and argues that conscientious travel broadens our understanding of climate change. Published in March 2023, the book features vivid vignettes—like sea level rise in Virginia and Maine lobsters migrating away from American territorial waters—and inspiring initiatives to mitigate and adapt to various threats, emphasizing the centrality of environmental justice and offering readers a hopeful message about how to take action themselves.

Gunter’s recognition by the YCC and his passion for climate change politics, ecotourism, and sustainable development underscore the College’s views on environmental stewardship and our values of global citizenship and responsible leadership.
