Description

Climate change is one of the most controversial and misunderstood issues of the 21st century. This book provides a clear understanding of the issue by presenting scientific facts to refute falsehoods and misinformation—and to confirm the validity of other assertions.

• Provides a broad overview of the subject of climate change that is specifically written to be accessible and interesting for senior high school or introductory college-level audiences

• Presents a comprehensive explanation of the science of climate change that directly addresses widely held misconceptions head-on—a strategy that has been demonstrated in education research to be more effective in dispelling myths and advancing student learning than straight fact-based teaching

• Focuses on providing quantifiable, evidence-based information on climate change—and acknowleding instances when conflicting data exists—from the most reputable and qualified sources
