I found this book entlightening, because it acknowleges history, and comforting, because it acknowleges death.
Learning to Die in the Anthropocene by Roy Scranton
"A grim (yet oddly uplifting) look at our almost certain extinction in the face of global climate change. I wish the book was a little longer, but it--like our existence, perhaps--had to meet its end too soon."
