Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A book on global warming like no other, merging key concepts with firsthand accounts from people of all ages who have found ways to help.

Inspired by the work of outstanding scientist and thinker James Lovelock and written by acclaimed author Nicola Davies, here is a book that takes a clear look at how and why Earths climate is changing and the ways we can deal with it. Its style is simple and its explanations are compelling, illuminating not only hard facts but also the opinions and potential solutions of scientists all over the world. But there are other voices too, those of people young and old — lawyers, food producers, fashion designers, scientists, rock stars, architects, conservationists, kids, campaigners, and more — who are trying to change the way they (and we) live on the planet. At once comprehensive and accessible, this galvanizing call to arms includes web links and resources that make it easy to join the cause.

Review:

"Using scientist James Lovelock's Gaia theory as its framework, this handbook by a British zoologist addresses common misconceptions about global warming — for example, the tendency to think of weather and climate as the same thing ('climate is a pattern that reveals itself only over many years... you have to see the big picture'). Davies's tone is casual but informed, as she explains the consequences of climate change — such as the impact of melting Arctic ice on Inuit populations — and emphasizes the importance of joint responsibility, both by consumers and corporations. Practical suggestions for lifestyle adjustments underscore her honest but never somber message; profiles of individuals and organizations working to enact change should prove inspiring. Ages 11 — 14. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
