Newly updated with the latest in climate science from COP26 and beyond, this third edition offers user-friendly, scientifically rigorous answers to the most difficult (and commonly politicized) questions surrounding climate change.

- Key updates from the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow
- Insights into changes in the political landscape, such as COVID-19 and Donald Trump's presidency, and what these have meant for climate action in the United States and internationally
- Contemporary implications of the clean energy revolution, from solar and wind power to batteries and electric cars
