Description
Every young person who cares about preserving the planet needs to know what's inside this book and follow the authors call to action.
First published for an adult readership, THE WEATHER MAKERS received critical kudos for its solid science and powerful message. Now this accessible new edition speaks directly to young adults, offering a clear look at the history of climate change, how it will unfold over the nextcentury, and what we can do to prevent a cataclysmic future. Here is an immediate and hard-hitting look backward and forward in climate history, bolstered by models and projections of current data. It includes interviews with people whose livelihoods have been directly affected by climate change, as well as individuals who make new technology and renewable resources a part of daily life. Newly featured are twenty-five practical tips that give readers the tools for living a greener lifestyle at home, in school, in the community, and ultimately, on Earth.
