Product Description

From Joseph Romm, Chief Science Advisor for National Geographic's Years of Living Dangerously series and one of Rolling Stone's "100 people who are changing America," Climate Change offers user-friendly, scientifically rigorous answers to the most difficult (and commonly politicized) questions surrounding what climatologist Lonnie Thompson has deemed "a clear and present danger to civilization."

New questions about climate change addressed in this guide include:

● Analysis of the Paris climate agreement, including the United States' withdrawal

● Implications of the clean energy revolution, from solar and wind power to batteries and electric cars

● The latest on climate science, including updates on efforts to stem or slow climate change

● Insights into what Donald Trump's presidency means for climate action in the US and internationally

As the global response to climate change continues to evolve, Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know® offers smart, unbiased answers to the most difficult questions in an area dogged by misunderstanding and politicization.


"Given the pressing need for action, CLIMATE CHANGE is the right book at the right time: accessible, comprehensive, unflinching, humane." —The Daily Beast

"A must-read for those who want to become climate literate and join the growing conversation about the greatest threat humanity faces today." —The Guardian

"Romm provides a useful primer on the drivers of climate change, the ways that the world might achieve that target, and the obstacles to moving away from business as usual... [the book] is full of useful information and accessible analysis." —Foreign Affairs
