Bedford and Cook offer to the general public this Q&A book on the facts about climate change. The book is arranged in the form of 35 questions arranged into five sections: the evidence regarding climate change, the causes of climate change, the likely impacts of climate change, the scientific consensus on climate change, and responding to climate change. Each question is followed by a short one-paragraph answer, then several paragraphs to several pages of explanation including citations. Topics discussed include, among others: data from sea ice and from temperature satellites, how global warming can cause extreme weather including record cold winters, significance of human activity in climate change, comparison of the 20th-21st centuries to the Medieval Warming Period, mechanism of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, climate trends on other planets, accuracy of computer models, ocean acidification and threats to biodiversity, the degree of scientific consensus and the rare dissenters, scientists' motivations, fairness and accuracy media coverage, carbon and energy policy, individual action, and China's approach to emissions. The text of the Paris Agreement is included as a postscript. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
