With meticulous research corroborated by over 100 scientists, Small Gases, Big Effect summarizes all the latest findings on the causes and effects of climate change. Combining clear, thoughtful writing with illuminating graphics, it is a little book that presents complex scientific evidence in a way that everyone will find easy to understand.

Media reviews

"It's found its way into more than 350,000 German homes. It's been read by Merkel's agriculture minister and at least 37 MPs in the Bundestag. It's a set text in universities, engineering conglomerates and the European Central Bank. Yet the most remarkable thing about it is that, in an age of inexorably hardening political battle lines, it is really changing minds."
– Oliver Moody, The Times

"Climate change has triggered a hurricane of contradictory claims and theses that obscure the facts. Unbiased, clear and evidence-based explanations are a shield against fake news. This amazing book delivers them."
– Dr. Claus Kleber, ZDF heute-journal

"This book, written by two young people, manages to summarise a wealth of complex scientific findings – the knowledge that we urgently need to shape our future."
– Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, founding director of the Postdam Institute for Climate Impact Research

"Small Gases, Big Effect explains climate change with the help of more than 100 scientists, presenting complex science in a way that everyone will find easy to understand."
