About this book

All around us, our planet is changing. Some changes are sudden and dramatic; others are almost imperceptible and take years. Our Earth in Action looks at these changes – from climate change to erosion and human activity – in detail. Weather describes the many ways in which our planet is shaped – and its inhabitants affected – by the weather, from hurricanes to snow and ice.
