About me, Nitin

Almost everyone who is inspired to work on climate change has a moment when they "got it". Mine came after reading This Changes Everything and The Uninhabitable Earth. Working in consumer technology allowed me to learn a great deal but once I "got it", all other problems paled in comparison. It was a surreal experience of walking by rows of colleagues diligently at work while the voice in my head screamed "Why does any of this matter when the literal Earth is burning!".

I'm fortunate to be able to take some time off to more methodically think about how I can best contribute to mitigating climate change. The primary means for my exploration is writing posts for this very newsletter. And to inspire these posts I also try to read as much as I can. They say, "You are what you eat" and in a similar vein I believe, "You are what you read". So here's a list of books in no particular order that have greatly shaped my view of the world:

And for consistency's sake, my top three cuisines are Mexican, Indian, and Chinese.
