We're highlighting some great websites, books, and videos to explore further.

These resources have been compiled by organisations and people from the effective environmentalism community or by organisations that we're inspired by.

  • Will MacAskill: An Introduction To Effective Altruism

    • Of all the problems facing humanity, which should we focus on solving first? Moral philosopher Will MacAskill quickly introduces the ITN framework and puts it to use, showing us how we can address the most urgent problems.

  • Taylor Sloan: Applying effective altruism to climate change

    • An investigation of the most cost-effective ways to reduce CO2 emissions and which industries have the most potential for change. The results are surprising!

  • Webinars recorded by the Effective Environmentalism community

    • Our YouTube channel has recordings of webinars on topics such as electrification, finding charities, and carbon removal.

  • 80,000 hours: Climate Change Problem Profile

    • An overview of climate change and why it is a top cause area for Effective Altruism (within the larger category of existential risks). The profile includes arguments for and against working on this problem and how are people currently tackling climate change.

  • Founders Pledge: Climate Change Executive Summary

    • The Founders Pledge is a “community of entrepreneurs” that is committed to funding “evidence-led” solutions to global problems. This executive summary from 2020 outlines the scale of the current climate crisis, discusses the role of energy, and recommends ways to harness low-carbon technology.

  • Project Drawdown: Table of Solutions

    • An integrative assessment of solutions to climate change. Note that Drawdown Scenario 1 is roughly in-line with 2˚C temperature rise by 2100, while Drawdown Scenario 2 is roughly in-line with 1.5˚C temperature rise at century’s end. Reduced food waste, health and education, and onshore wind turbines are among the highest-impact solutions.
