Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know offers the most up-to- date examination of climate change’s foundational science, its implications for our future, and the core clean energy solutions. Alongside detailed but highly accessible descriptions of what is causing climate change, it answers questions about the practical implications of this growing force on our world.
