Climate Change (Changing Perspectives) (Library Binding)
Global climate change is real. It is not new, and it is not fake news. The New York Times began reporting on climate change in the mid-twentieth century: Melting arctic ice in the 1940s. Increasingly warm average temperatures decade after decade. The fossil fuel industry inciting skepticism about global warming. And the United States' reluctance to commit to a reduction in carbon emissions that might negatively impact its economy. The story of human-made climate change unfolds through articles written at the time of the events. It ends with a clear explanation of what's at risk, and what readers can do to help.
