With abundant charts and diagrams and large-format photos, this title explores the science behind greenhouse gases, polar sea ice, and rising sea levels, and considers actions people and governments can take to try to improve the situation. Features include a flow chart showing the disaster's causes and effects, a glossary, references, websites, source notes, and an index.
