You know, I'd say if we were to have a question on literary works on Earth Science, it would be on meta, with no community wiki. But first, let me explain a bit:
Stack Exchange really isn't meant for list questions. It's been brought up time and time again. This really isn't a question meant for the main site.
However, it is a very useful question to people. Want to know where to learn about earth science? Point people to that post.
Right now, as we're in private beta, I'd say hold off for a bit. It takes a community to build and maintain a list such as this. But right now, we're building that community. It's just too soon, as we're still getting people, determining our scope, and starting as a baby site.
