NPR interviewed the authors of two books released yesterday that both address the negative consequences of major modern changes.

Social psychologist Jonathan Haidt's book The Anxious Generation tackles smartphone addiction among kids; he talked with Steve Inskeep about the low self-esteem and isolation this causes.

And ProPublica reporter Abrahm Lustgarten's book On the Move argues that millions of Americans could move to escape unfavorable climate conditions in the next few decades.

He spoke with Dave Davies about how he came to this conclusion and what specifically these climate refugees might expect.
