World leaders, environmentalists and the international science community agree that climate change is one of the largest and most intractable problems now confronting us all. Despite this, it still remains a bewildering subject.Using awe-inspiring images from around the world, "The World's Greatest Challenge" tries to answer our urgent questions: What is climate change? How will it affect us? What can we do to stop it?
The book is divided into five chapters; which look at why our climate is changing; how the world works; how we predict the outcomes of climate change; how we live with change; and how we make a difference. It looks at environmental, cultural and technological changes likely to occur in the 21st century and beyond. It takes scientific findings and demystifies them; it illuminates our planet's greatest threat in a dynamic and entertaining manner without being dogmatic or judgmental.
"The World's Greatest Challenge" empowers the reader by providing information on solutions and opportunities to reduce the impact of climate change.
