Reviewed by CBC Reviewer

In the brilliant Seymour Simon format, this book provides a photo essay examining global warming and the devastating facts regarding this enormous world issue. This NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2011 presents the facts in a clear text within the range of most readers from middle elementary to secondary level. The language is careful and precise, but the message clear. There is 30% more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than there was 150 years ago, and that anthropogenic change is affecting life on Earth.

The lesson—that this problem affects each and every one of us—is powerfully conveyed through the text and photos in the book. The book should be on every library shelf as tomorrow's citizens consider ways to protect the planet.
