Award-winning science writer Seymour Simon gives you a full-color photographic introduction to the causes and effects of global warming and climate change.

Earth's climate has always varied, but it is now changing more rapidly than at any other time in recent centuries. The climate is very complex, and many factors play important roles in determining how it changes. Why is the climate changing? Could Earth be getting warmer by itself? Are people doing things that make the climate warmer?

This book was a great introduction and explanation for global warming, a very serious problem that is and will continue to effect our earth exponentially. It is such a complex thing to wrap one's head around, and this book does a great job of breaking it down into simple terms for a young reader to understand¿yet it is also a great jumping off point for an older reader, if they are interested in learning more about the subject. And because it's packed with beautiful full color photographs (especially photographs of nature and wildlife that are and will be negatively impacted by this problem,) it is easy to hold interest and emotion.

In case some of you don't know, global warming means the Earth getting warmer and higher in temperature and can sometimes get severe. It is caused by the usage of cars and factories. Whenever you start your car, do you see the gases going up into the air, or watch those gas factories emit Carbon Dioxide? Together we can stop global warming by walking instead of driving, and even send your ideas to stop global warming. Together we can stop global warming.
