Detailed Book Description
Read true stories of how climate change has affected people’s lives and learn the science behind the new reality we witness every day.
In Climate in Crisis: Changing Coastlines, Severe Storms, and Damaging Drought, readers 12 to 15 discover how climate change is affecting the human population—from extreme weather and rising coastlines to new migration patterns and disease—through real-life stories and a deep examination of the science driving the phenomenon. As kids gain a deeper understanding of our ultimate connection to everything on and around our planet, they are also encouraged to think of innovative ways to help curb climate change, which has been called humanity’s greatest challenge.
Graphic novel style illustrations, essential questions, and fascinating sidebars illuminate the topic of climate change while links to online resources engage readers on a digital level.
