The Science of our Changing Planet explores how we can live more sustainably, and offers positive ideas on how we can alleviate past and present damage to the Earth. Inside, you’ll find:

   • Wide-ranging coverage of problems affecting the planet, from global warming to pollution and food shortage.
   • Clear graphics that interpret and present the data in an easy-to-digest way.
   • Positive messages and plans for creating a better world, including the rise of clean/green technology.

Written by environmentalist and sustainability advisor Dr. Tony Juniper, this eye-opening global warming book explains a wide range of research that captures the influence of human activities on our planet. Through powerful, easy-to-grasp graphics, this educational book gets straight to the facts! Discover the science behind climate change, overpopulation, overconsumption, pandemics and other factors that threaten life on Earth.

The climate change book sheds light on how we’re rapidly approaching the point of no return, but offers ideas on environmental conservation and how to use green technology to save the planet.
