Gary The Go-Cart
Carbon Comes Out of the Closet
"Carbon Comes out of the Closet" is a humorous conservative "Children's Book" that tackles Climate Change, Energy and Fake News in a manner that is so simple, even a child can understand it on some level. (Hopefully the parent will get it as well ) It tells the inconvenient truth about the carbon controversy. It clearly illustrates how it is all politics and money and nothing to do with the environment.
It is a fun story, written in poetry with rhyme and cadence. It is illustrated by the late, great award-winning Sidnei Marques, who passed away shortly after completing the illustrations for this book. It is titled the way it is because the author was tired of hearing people being vilified for not believing in man-made catastrophic climate change and she wanted to "Come out of the closet" and go ahead and say out loud that she didn't believe it either.
This book shows how carbon dioxide is actually good for the environment. It presents a side of the climate change argument that isn't often heard. The book can be read on one level to a child, and on a much deeper level by a teenager or an adult. It will likely make you laugh out loud. There is a section at the back of the books, "For the adults in the room" that helps explain the concepts in more depth.
The Gary the Go-Cart series was written to balance the conversation surrounding energy and the environment. BB's goal was to simplify some rather complicated ideas about energy and climate change.
